    I was able to put an All Parts neck on my SX Jazz bass with minimal effort. :)

    Edit:
    Just dug up a pic with it in there. It's the white SX bass in the back to the right:

  4. nice, i was thinkin about getting a Fender American neck for my SX. also, what's up with that jazz bass body? it looks like they used 2 different woods on it!
     
  5. I'll buy a p or j body off someone if they buy it...
     
  6. Did I read that right? $179 for all six bodies? I'd be tempted if I could get just one of those for a lot cheaper, I just happen to have an old headstock SX maple neck just laying around.

    IME the necks are *nearly* interchangable. Nothing a lil sandpaper and/or shimming can't fix (which is also pretty much true of the retail complete instruments).

    I'd think if he listed them individually, they'd go quite fast.

    Myself, I need fewer, not more. :( But I do have an extra old-style SX neck (white binding/inlays) that'd look sweet...

    That would doubtless be because with SX sometimes you get the bear and sometimes the bear gets you!

    I have had 2 SX and 1 Douglass body, all with Fender necks on them!

    My Douglass Pisces (mid '50's P-Bass) currently sports a Fretless Fender custom shop neck (just took a little elbow grease).
     
  10. I'd buy the 5 string body if anybody picks these up.
     
  11. Sorry, this item is out of stock!

    Somebody bought 'em!
