Just snagged a used black MIM Fender Jazz off of ebay for $275.00, which normally isn't a great deal, except for the fact that it has EMG Vintage Jazz pickups and active preamp, so I'm pretty geeked. Anyway, the reason I bought it was that I was looking for a cheap Jazz bass (one of my favorite quotes on this board was from Embellisher, who once said "everyone should own a jazz bass" - I agree ) to upgrade. Fortunately, this one has already had an electronics upgrade, so I'm partly there. Now I need to add a red tortoise shell pickguard, a decent bridge and, prefereably, a vintage Jazz neck with block inlays. So I have a couple of questions: 1) Has anyone else here installed a vintage jazz neck on a MIM jazz? If so, were there any problems or anything which I need to take into consideration? 2) Can anyone recommend a good, solid, replacement bridge that would not require extra drilling? Could I replace the current crappy one with, say, an older American Jazz bridge easily? Thanks in advance.
