    im found this great looking body for my mim jazz neck and i know i can make it work but im wondering is there any thing other than the neck pocket differnt sizes and the bolts not ling up that i should know about???

    also under the pickguard is there any routing??? i want it to look kinda like jacos.

    also how good are the pickups, would they be better to stay in the bass or switch them out for the mexican pickups???

    I haven't opened up the SX, but I'd be shocked if it was not routed under the bridge. Sorry, no Jaco look (besides Jaco didn't have a photo flame). I think the SX picups are OK, but I'd be willing to bet that the MIM Fender ones sound better. Have you looked into parts? Mighty mite http://www.mightymite.com/ sells bodies with the rout you're looking for. The SX you're looking at is a complete bass, no reason to part that out.
