I have aquired an old markhoppus bass from a friend which I'm so excited about, but the reason he was so willing to give it to me is because the body is totally trashed. I just bought a new pickguard, but man the body is good for nothing. There is truly no hope for it. I figured I could get a warmoth body. When I emailed them to see if I could do it they said they needed the custom pickup spacing of the 2011 reverse split pickups on it. I figured well what the hell if I'm gonna get custom spacing I might as well put something stupid like a music Man pickup in there, but I don't want to cut into the pickguard. Now I don't actually know if the traditional spacing of one even reaches the pickguard, but if it does I would like to know a spacing that would provide a very similar tone, without having to modify the pickguard. So if you guys know the measurements fron the neck pocket, that would be lovely.
