    Hi guys. My other SX P-Bass is on its way(this one has P/J p-ups...)and i'm converting it to "fretless". Do any of you gentlemen know if any of the aftermarket fretless necks(Allparts,Warmoth,Mighty-Mite,etc...)will fit the SX models,neck pocket,screw hole lineup,etc??? Thanks.

    No, the SX pocket is .09 larger so it will be loose. You can remedy this with some brush on or spray poly or lacquer by adding a few coats to the sides of the neck pocket.

    IIRC, screw holes don't line up either, so get a neck that isn't drilled for them already.


    The only downside to this is that the neck will then HAVE to be on an SX...so...yeah.
