Ok heres the story. I got this ultra cheap bass not even knowing what brand it is as a gift from some guy i bought an amp once. I plugged in to my rig just once and play it for about 40 seconds, it sounded HORRIBLE, so i just hang it on my wall and it stayed there like for a year. Until one day i got the "wonderful" idea that i could use the body (jazz bass body) and build me a new bass, talked about that with my luthier and that seemed like a good idea to him too. So few days later i bought this: 1 Fender Custom Shop Jazz Bass Pickup Set 1 Fender Precision Original Pickup Set 1 BadAss II Bridge 1 Fender Precision Pickups Cover 1 Fender Replacement Vintage Bass Nickel Tuner Set And Ordered some maple wood for building a new neck The original idea was use the body from that cheap-ass i got last year and "pimp it" to get something like this But now i am thinking.. i am getting all this cool items, for a cool bass and I will be using a cheap body.. How much does the body wood really matters? I have spent already too much money on this project, but guys if you tell me something like "YOU ARE CRAZY GET ONE GOOD BODY" i'll be buying some jazzbass ash body right away.. Help me please.
