I am planning on building a Fender Jazz Bass. My current plans include buying a Fender american made jazz body, no paint. i am prob. going to paint it gold with flakes, or sparkle gold top, you know... same thing. i am having trouble finding a fender american made body with no paint. anyway, next i will get a neck. I want a black block inlay jazz neck, but i am not sure if they make an american one. if not, should i just get a geddy lee neck. next question is about the various components. I need suggestions about jazz-style pick-ups, and what type of sound each one makes. also, what are the best tuners, and bridge, etc. i was going to get a badass II, but i've heard bad things. i would still like to get one, but are there any better suggestions. If there are any other things that i did not mention, please make a suggestion. Thanks a lot for yalls help.
