I'm presently in the process of rebuilding a P bass. My friend gave me a P Bass body that has been crapily repainted. I plan on stripping it down and refinishing it. I recently bought a MightMite P bass replacement neck for this bass body. However, the neck is slightly too big for the neck pocket....about 1/16". Would sanding down the sides of the neck pocket take care of this and make it fit? Is there a specific height that the bass of the neck should stick out of the neck pocket? The reason I as is because this neck is thick at the base then the neck that was previously on this body. Should I sand down the whole neck pocket? Should a P bass neck pocket have certain dimensions? I would appreciate any help I could get. I'm kinda new to bass building and refinishing. Thanks!!!
