Essex 5 String J Chop Conversion to P (Possible?)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by nonfatmatt, Feb 28, 2008.

  1. So I'm sick of trying different basses because I know what I want and nobody makes it. I want a 5 string vintage style with a P pickup and an MM style pickup in the sweet spot. After poring over the interweb and coming up with nothing I'm wondering if it'd just be possible to just buy an SX 5 string jazz and chop it up, hire a shop to route out the bottom pickup and get a custom pickguard to cover the P end of things along with an Audere preamp or maybe an aguilar or something. The question is is this a viable route to go, do you forsee any problems?
