So you love the feel of a Fender Precision neck, but prefer the comfort of a Jazz Bass body? You can have the best of both worlds - in fact, this section is jam-packed with bodies and necks to help you create the bass of your dreams. Along with Fender, you'll also discover a wide range of options from Mighty Mite - one of the most well-known suppliers of high-quality guitar and bass parts since the 1970s. Whether you're building a model from scratch or replacing a part on your existing instrument, you'll be blown away by the craftsmanship of every neck and body in this catalog.
The type of tonewood you go with will definitely play a major role in the resulting sound of your bass. For example, alder was often used on bodies built by Leo Fender because of its light weight and resonance. There are plenty of alder body options here, including the Fender USA Precision Bass Alder Body. Made in the USA, this body is routed for a traditional split single-coil pickup and pre-drilled with four string-through-body holes, three bridge-mounting screw holds and a bridge ground wire channel. Ash bodies are also popular and known for providing a more focused tone. Sound appealing? Check out the Mighty Mite MM2702 P-Bass Replacement Body. Made of swamp ash and sporting an eye-catching burst finish, this bass body will impress any musician who wants to build their own P-bass from scratch.
Wood type should also be taken into consideration when you choose a neck. Maple is well-liked for its strength and brightness, and the Fender USA Jazz Bass Neck has a very smooth feel thanks to its tinged satin urethane finish on the neck's back. The gloss finish over the maple fingerboard and headstock face also adds to its playability. You'll even find necks for 5-string basses, and the Mighty Mite MM2920 5-String P-Bass Replacement Neck with Rosewood Fingerboard will satisfy any wailer. Rosewood is favored for the warm tone it helps to deliver, and this model in particular is fitted with 20 medium frets and topped off with an oil-based finish.
And if we still didn't touch on the bass body or neck that you're looking for, feel free to explore the rest of these choices. Bass customization is an exciting hobby to take up, and any one of the necks or bodies from this selection would be a definite upgrade to your instrument.
