I'm considering building a custom Precision Bass for a band I just joined (that way I can stop borrowing my brother's custom Jazz Bass). I have a few questions about the construction:

1) Are Precision and Jazz necks interchangeable? I really like the P Bass body, but I prefer the feel of the Jazz Bass neck as I have tiny hands.
2) Are there any pickguards available for Precision-style bodies that are cut for Music Man-style humbuckers? The body I'm looking at is routed large enough to fit a humbucker but I can't find such a pickguard.
3) Will a standard P-bass pickup cover go over a humbucker pickup? It looks like it should but I'm not sure.

Thanks for your help.

I only know the answer to the first question, but it's yes. Jazz- and P-bass necks have the same heel and the bodies have the same pocket. They are completely interchangeable.

3. Do you mean actual pickup covers or those metal covers that go over the pups and the strings and are screwed in?


I was referring to the big metal covers. I'm a fan of that '60's P Bass look.
