I've bought a Bronco bass body for about 30 bucks off Ebay, and have a new pickup on the way for the body. I was thinking of converting it to an 8-string using a Schaller 471 bridge and a new neck. I sent Warmoth an e-mail, but they seemed more or less to shrug me off. The Bronco's neck pocket is approximately 2.25", whilst all Warmoth necks are the standard Fender 2.5" neck pocket. I have also e-mailed other luthiers across the Internet that could make custom necks that fit the neck heel, but no one has returned my e-mails (Some I I am going on a week as to waiting for a reply). So, I am not sure what exactly to do here. Should I try and route out an extra 1/8" on each side of the neck pocket or maybe have it done by a shop? Or do I keep sending e-mails?
