I've done some searching on the threads, and find a lot of people saying every reason why you shouldn't do it. But, I'm not sure where else to go. I have a Douglas Pisces I purchased from Rondo about two years ago. I love it. I'd like to duplicate it to another '54 style P-bass (it uses a Strat/Musicmaster-sized pickup rout, and I use a Mojotone lipstick tube) to tune to BEAD. I find a lot of similar basses on AliExpress that are a lot like the Douglas I bought from Rondo. I'm not a fan of the Squier Classic Vibe Tele bass at the price. I like the neck, but would rather have an Alder body. Is it just a matter of looking at the seller feedback and some reviews? I can see a lot of bodies that are described as "Mahogany" but are really agathis...but there are some that look like alder.
