    Any idea country & decade of this bass?
    I have a bass I disassembled '88-'90ish that is supposedly an Asian Fender Jazz COPY. The nut is 1&5/16" ad the heel is just under 2&1/4 at the widest. It has only one pickup - a stacked white pickup in the middle position. the control plate has Vol,Treble(Hi),Bass(Low),Jack. The body is routed out from control pocket up to treble horn and a doughnut for pickups (thin route for the middle pickup but big route that looks like a HB could go just below the neck. The wood is a dark brown and the neck has non-adjustable dual truss rods. The Neck was anchored on with 4 huge screws and the chrome neck plate screwed into the neck as well with 4 long thin screws. Tug bar. Missing pickup cover. Bridge was replaced by previous owner with a Badass 2.

    I am considering shaving a Mighty Mite fretless Ebonal neck to the original width (replace nut) and perhaps the same with a maple fretted Squier neck I have. Any thoughts on how Ebonal will react to a plane or sander?
