    Really love this Precision Special neck... was waiting for a ‘cheap’ body... found a Squier VM PJ in the ‘scratch & dent’ bin at MF... got a Tort guard (of course), bridge cover... threw on a set of GHS Pressurewounds... voila! Will probably upgrade pickups, pots & wiring- at some point- but ‘tis good for now!!
    *Update: pickups & wiring harness enroute... :hyper:

    Here is the ‘scratch & dent’... on the back- may ‘fill-in’ to prevent spreading...

    It’s an odd thing to say about a new bass but it’ll start to look amazingly awesome once it gets some wear on it.

  13. I dont think I ever asked, did you have to mod/alter anything to fit the Fender neck, or did it drop right in?
