Hey all. So I bought a custom carved J body from a guy here in the TB forums, planning on swapping over the fender J neck I have. Neck pocket was right and all. I get the body and it's waaaay too short to fit a full sized fender neck. I was pissed, but I got over it quick. Body was good quality, and only $25 after all. So I want to make a short scale bass for noodling with, maybe even convert it to a piccolo eventually, but I can't for the life of me find an aftermarket short scale neck to purchase! It's driving me batty! Oh, and I'd rather not spend more than $100 on this, max. It's a short scale frankenbass, I'm not spending a fortune to put it together. heh. Standard fender pocket on a short scale neck, not sure if that'll happen. Therefore, I'd be ok with shimming in the neck pocket if the heel is smaller than fender standard, and throw on a weird hand-cut pickguard to cover the ugly. I e-mailed warmoth, they said they're hoping to have some shorties within the next year. useful. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
