    I couldnt resist, because thats what it would be like IF I :

    • Put my MIM P on a table
    • Got a Highway one in the same colour
    • Removed the (black) scratchplate and Seymour duncan SPB3's from the MIM
    • Fitted them to the Highway one (assuming this is possible)
    • Sold the MIM as it would make a few quid never being gigged etc
    • Highway Mon! i choose you!

    :p

    Is it possible? :meh:

    sorry, a pokemon is a cartoon charectar which evolves into a better version of itself in an instant.

    A quid is a british term for a pound or dollar or whatever. Sorry :D

    I don't see why there would be any problem? All you're doing is swapping a pickguard and pickups.

    I love the British slang for money. It's good to know that quid is still used, but I assume bob is no longer used since the change to the decimal system.

    Anyway, there is no reason you couldn't do the swaps you are talking about. If you prefer the Highway one neck and body, go for it!

    Im worried about things like screw holes, and tone circuits.

    Does the H1 have the same (or simillar) circuitry to the MIM and others?

    Edit: Bob is still widely used :)

    Very possible, but why?

    It'll sound the same, and look the same, and for the most part feel the same, only difference will be the Highway 1's nitro finish.

    And have the badass II bridge, fender MIA construction though.

    I have been told in another post that highway one is a good step up from the MIM

    Yeah, from a stock MIM, its a decent move up, not a modded one with an SD, honestly, just get a Badass for your current bass, and it'll be just as good.

    I guess your right. Their not a huge step up. Theres something in knowing your holding MIA and not MIM though. Still, i think i'll take your advice.

    Seriously, the big difference in MIA basses is the hardware and electronics, unless you buy something odd, like the Tony Franklin, Roscoe Beck, or the Delux series.

    You have everything covered, the badass will be the final touch.

    Darkstrike, bringing a bass into a post containing the name Roscoe?! What gives you the right?! ;)

    Yes. It would work. But why? Why not sell them both, or not buy the HW1, and get a used MIA. Problem solved.

    Yes you could, all the other legends were easy to catch without it anyway, so I always minded mine.

    Totally. If you didn't waste it on one of the birds, or if you duplicated it a bunch of times :smug:
