    Any reason why my USA Jazz plus-5 neck won't fit a MIM body? How about the j-plus bridge on the MIM body? Any insight on neck pocket differences etc...would be greatly appreciated.

    We have a problem. Here is the story....

    I bought this '92 jazz plus about 4 years ago and the preamp was toasted. Unable to find a replacement at the time, I simply made it passive and while I had it apart I stripped the body down to the wood and clear coated it. I played it for about a year and sold it to another local bass player. He didn't want it to be passive so he ordered the 4 knob preamp found in active Fender basses. Since there were only three holes and no pg or control plate he drilled a hole in the body for knob # 4. while he had it apart he decided to strip the clearcoat and stain the center of the bass a darker color to resemble a neck through look. Three years later I found out that he no longer used it and bought it back because I loved the neck so much. The preamp he had in it shorted out so I again switched it back to passive with three knobs ( and a hole). I had planned on using the neck and hardware on a MIM body but it now seems that is not an option. Should I sell as is? Part it out? Or can anyone think of anther solution that involves me keeping and using this awesome neck?
