    Hey y'all...

    Question.

    Now... let's say you have a P-bass... and you want to install a Jazz pickup. Do you have to do any routing? What would that entail?

    Silly question, I know. But I'm just curious...

    I'd appreciate any answers...

    You will have to rout out the recess for the pickup and drill a hole from the edge of the recess into the control area so you can run the pickup wires. The biggest problem here is doing it without messing up the finish.

    I hope I read that right. I am assuming you want to ADD a jazz pickup by the bridge like a P/J bass.

    That's exactly right, SnakeKappele. And you answered my question perfectly. Thanks. I doubt I'd want to go through all that mess.
