    Hi, i am planning on purchasing an SX P-bass and i was wondering about the compatibility with other parts. Do standard Fender P-bass pickguards match up with it? How about a neck replacement, is the neck pocket the right size? I want to replicate the look of an american vintage 57 p-bass so thats why im askin

    The bridge matches up fine, but there will be 2 extra holes hidden under the fender bridge because the SX has 7 holes. The control plate from a MIA fender fit my SX jazz perfectly, but that doesnt help you. I doubt the pickguards will match exactly because even 2 squiers arent the same. SX and MIM tuners are the same size but the SX screw holes are closer together. I think you could fit a fender neck on it but you may have to drill new holes.

    I took an SX 62 jazz bass in sunburst/tort and put an SX P-neck, MIM hardware and MIA electronics. So only the body and pickguard are original.

    Honestly Id just get the closest SX to the "look" you want and call it a day....or maybe just a pup/electronics swap.
