    Would it be possible to replace something on a mass-produced bass with something you made yourself. For example, the headstock. Is it possible to replace that for one more customized to your liking? I know (I think) that the strings would have to end up in the same spot, but...yeah, anyone know anything about this?

    That depends. It is possible to replace the neck, but a headstock may be a bit tricky. The Fender headstocks, in particular, may be difficult, due to their one-piece construction and lack of angle. But could you take that off and replace it with a stock with a 13 degree angle? There is no reason that I can think of that says you can't.
