Will these parts fit together?

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by Gbass75, Feb 6, 2013.

  1. Hey everyone!

    So... I have gotten my hands on a bunch of parts, and I wonder if you could tell me if they're compatible.

    Here's what I'm wondering about:

    1. Vintage 50s RI Fender P BASS NECK

    2. Vintage USA 57 RI Fender Precision P BASS BODY

    Will these two jibe?

    Can you share your expertise?

    Thanks so much!

    Yes. Generally, anything with a standard Fender neck pocket will work fine together.

    Have you tried attaching the neck to the body, yourself?
  4. I knew someone was gonna ask me why I didn't just put 'em together myself...

    I don't yet have the parts in my possession.

    Sorry I didn't clarify!!! :D

    Hello? You said, "I have gotten my hands on a bunch of parts..." That's not quite true is it? LOL

    Looks like both have rounded heels. Should work with no issues. I guess certin reissues had a square heel.
