    Ok I wanna try to do this and was wondering if it was possible? Ok I wanna try to get a junked out but good looking guitar to start, put a graphite neck on it, swap out the pick ups and probably the hardware to along with the pick guard to customize it. Is this possible and is it a good idea.

    Yes, it is possible, but IMO, it isn't a good idea. IMO, if you want to customize something that much, it is a better to buy everything in parts. So i'd just get the body, neck plate, screws, etc. from warmoth, and you'll probably have a much higher quality bass. The problem is, that you have to buy everything at once, and it may be slightly more expensive, but it could be cheaper (depends on what junked out bass you are talking about.) Beefed up basses are not too difficult to find, too. You might get lucky and find what you want as a whole, put together, and a ton cheaper than what you would pay for.

    Warmoth makes excellent stuff. Your original plan is sound, it just depends on the bass. TONS of people upgrade their Mexcian Jazz basses, myself included, because they are relatively cheap, especially used, they are pretty good to start with, and there are a wealth of aftermarket parts available. I've said it before, MIM Jazzes are the Honda Civics of bass-dom.

    Good luck. :)
