Hello all, I just ordered a 5 string Music Man Stingray neck on ebay and I want to "build" a P bass for it. I'm not a "luthier" compared to some of the other work I've seen on here so I want to keep things relatively simple. I have done many setups, pickup changes, and built a Warmoth guitar before that have turned out well. I think the simplest approach here would be to get a 4 string P bass body and enlarge the neck pocket to fit the MM neck (since the 5 string Fender pocket is bigger than the MM). But up front I thought I'd ask: The neck already has mounting holes. I can get a Warmoth without holes. Any tips for how I can drill the holes in the neck pocket to line up with the existing neck holes? Will the neck-body transition be weird in the lower cutaway (circled in the attached figure)? I'll have to remove 1/8" from each side of the neck pocket. (edited to add) Will I have issues with router blowout in the same circled area of the figure? I've only used routers on 90 degree corners where I was able to support the end of the wood with another board. That'll be tough here. I was just reading in another thread that he cut the neck pocket before shaping the body. Thanks!
