    Hey

    Looking for some opinions on Mighty mite replacement bodies and necks?

    Are they any good? Anyone made a decent bass with them and would recommend them?

    They seem cheaper than warmouth, and look ok from pictrures I've seen, but pictures don't count for much!

    The ones I've seen have been excellent quality, as good or better than the stock Fender necks. There's just fewer options compared to Warmoth.
     
  5. Mighty Mite stuff used to be VERY hit-or-miss, but they've really stepped their game up, as of late.

    Good stuff.

    I have a P neck of theirs, on a Jazz bass, bought it from Stewmac, I dig it, nice satin finish, frets were perfect, rolled edges, nice grain. Been solid as a rock since I got it, and the bass has a trem.

    I'd buy another without a shadow of a doubt, or fear.

    I have a FrankenStrat with a very, very nice MightyMite neck, if that's any indication then I'd say their bass necks are probably quite good...

    I got a P bass body from them, Really nice but I couldn't find a pickgaurd that would cover the routing near the jack.

    Just recently ordered a jazz neck, I have not used it yet but it looks great!

    I'v heard the same issue from a few people: from memory the american reissue pickguards fit perfectly, do a search on the forums im pretty sure its been covered.
     
  10. I bought a precision maple neck with maple fretboard and black dot markers a few years ago, whacked it onto a squier jazz body. Couldn't complain, it felt like a P neck and was well made, well finished and well worth the money I paid for it at the time, which I can't for the life of me remember.
     
  11. I recently put an unlined fretless ebanol P neck on a Jazz and it was really excellent.

    This is a Mighty Mite body with an Allparts Jazz neck project. The body is flawless and the neck pocket is square. The neck fitment is really nice.

    I've built 3, two '57 P-Bass style and one Jazz. All three used Fender pickups and hardware. I still have one of the P's. They all needed slight sanding to make the neck and bodies fit but that was no big deal. The tuners (Fender) had to have the holes opened slightly to fit, which may not be necessary with different tuners but I wanted a '57 P-Bass without paying the Fender price. All three Basses played great and (I bought the finished bodies) looked great too ! I've only kept one; it plays as good as the others but the one I kept is a Tabasco Burst on Quilt Maple with all gold hardware. I wouldn't hesitate to use any Mighty Mite parts ( I put a MM pickup in the P position on a MIM P Bass and it sounded great)

    I believe a body AND neck can be had for around $275.00 for both together.
