This may be better suited for the luthier section... but whatevs... I have a birthday coming up. I'm not rich, by any means, but i wanna treat myself. I've been wanting a bass that will be my "picking bass". I play with my fingers most of the time, and i'm super finickey about a proper set-up. So, i would LOVE a bass that's always set up for pick playing. After lots of soundclips, and knowing the tone i want for what i play... i've decided the picked T-bird tone is what i want. I've had this allparts P bass neck for a while now.... if i find an Epi. T-bird body, will it be an easy drop in... or is this something better left to someone with actual wood-working ability? Also, i have a heads up on some pickups from an 80's Gibson T-bird. Are THOSE a direct drop-in, or do Epi T-bird pups have different dimensions that their big bros? Thanks!!
