    Does anyone know who sells licensed Fender bodies that match Fender's 70's specifications? (A body that has the Bridge PUP closer to the bridge.)

    Thanks.

    I actually just posted about this yesterday because the Warmoth customer rep told me on the phone that they can't move the bridge pup back, but after I posted, Brian from Warmoth responded saying they indeed can move the pup routing back a 1/2". So, Warmoth would be your answer.

    Thanks for the reply.

    Is the spacing difference 1/2"? I thought it was 3/8". :confused:

    You know, I can't say for sure. I always thought it was a full 1/2" but I'll check on my 75RI when I get home. I'm sure someone else will have an answer before then though.

    I picked up a UV Sadowsky on Monday. Roger told me it was 3/8 inch if I remember well. Im sure warmoth can do whatever you'd like

    So is a Geddy Lee basically a 70's bass?
