Poor little basses out there, scared, alone... Lol, sorry. Ok, here's my question, when do you consider a bass to have really changed? This question is difficult to word, so here's an example of what I mean: Say you have a Fender MIM J Bass, a popular bass to upgrade/mod. Say you replace the pups, would you still call it a Fender MIM J? What if you replace all the hardware (new bridge, pickgaurd, tuners, strap buttons, plates)? What if you redo all the wiring and electronics? Replace the body? Does it matter what body you put on it? If it's a MIA body would it still be a MIM J? What if you put a warmoth body? An SX body (dunno why you would but...)? What if you defret it? Change the neck? At this point you've replaced every part of the bass, so it couldn't still be considered a Fender MIM Jazz right? My Question is at what point do you no longer consider it a Fender MIM Jazz?
