    Hey, I'm looking to trade a super funky Ibanez Blazer body from 1980. It's in relatively good condition, I'd say a 7/10. There aren't any major dings in it, but the bridge is pretty dirty/rusty. All original everything, as far as I know. The knobs are a little crackly and could use a cleaning as well.

    What I would be looking for is a p bass or even better, a pj bass body to trade it for. This bass just haa one single coil pickup so it doesn't quite have the thump I'm after, though it does sound really great. It has a very clean, articulate and somewhat growly kind of sound.

    Cheers

    Would I be better off just buying a sx and swapping the necks? :meh:

    Pm replied. Cash price for the body would be 100$ plus shipping from Winnipeg.

    I think that is a fair price, it is certainly worth more then a case and a half of beer! :ninja:

    Very interesting. A couple questions:

    Does this body fit a standard Fender neck?

    Also, do you know the weight of the loaded body?

    Good questions! I'm pretty sure a it is the same size as a fender neck. The neck plate (4 screws), neck pocket length and width are the exact same as my MIM fender. But I haven't tried switching the necks so I can't say for sure.

    I weighed the whole bass on my crappy bathroom scale and it was about 9 pounds. I've never found it to be very heavy.

    So, the pocket length is a hair over 4", width is 2 1/4", and the depth is 11/16th". Definitely not a standard size. So I guess this is off the market, it would just be too tough for me to find a body that would fit. You may be seeing this bass for sale in the next little while. Thanks everybody...

    Does any body know the neck pocket size on sx basses? I can't find any specific info anywhere online :(
