  1. Folks I have just acquired this bass body and pickup - as you can see it is in pretty bad shape and I have a suspicion its not even solid wood but I was possibly going to put together a fretless as I have always wanted to try one. The neck pocket is incredibly short and uses ferrules not a neck plate. Anybody got any idea what it is - the parts don't look too good so I suspect it is something nice a cheap but I have not managed to find a match anywhere

    get a fretless neck, use a neckplate if you want. install a bridge only after you can position it for proper scale. set it up = a fretless! :hyper:

    FWIW: i've been getting some really nice chinese/cheap fretless necks on ebay! if you like P-bass necks, try mighty mite.
