    Yes, but you would have to do some work on it. You could buy an inexpensive body and neck no problem, but tuners and pickups, wiring, etc would have to be done by you or a local tech.

    Very Good !!
    U have interesting configurations for the Dinky J ? because for me, it s very difficult to take the good parts of the bass, if u can help me...
    And after this, i have to be done by a local tech, in Paris...

    Have you contacted Warmoth? You could e-mail them and tell them what you want and how much you want to spend and they should work with you.

    Warmoth Dinky J Korina wood - $205
    Warmoth Maple Neck with Pau Ferro fingerboard - $160
    Basslines MusicMan pickup - $150
    Auilar OBP-1 - $100

    Total - $615

    This is without any finishing (extra if you want Warmoth to do it), tuners, strings, nut, pots, knobs, bridge, setup, etc.

    Bottom line...for $600....impossible.
