Customizing Question

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by ThumperCI6, Aug 3, 2003.

  1. will a '57 p-bass neck fit onto a squier p-bass? I'm redoing my 1999 squier...putting bassline pickups, neck, and paint...but wanted to know if the '57 p-bass neck would fit. let me know if anyone has a clue.

    Don't know for sure... If you take very accurate measurements and post them, I'm sure that you can get an answer.

    If you're changing so much, why not just sell the Squier and buy a Fender P?

    It should. Most Fender parts are interchangable but the really low end Fender stuff might have skightly different specs.

    You may try asking Warmoth.

    the usa '57 p bass neck will be 2-1/2" wide at the heel. some of the import fender stuff has a neck pocket width of slightly less-around 2-7/16". sometimes it's just a matter of sanding the finish off of the sides of the neck pocket. the actual depth of the pocket is not usually an issue.
