im gonna get a blacktop jazz bass. but im gonna wanna put a maple neck on it. would it be better to go to say ebay and but the maple neck and the body separate or would it be better to that whole bass and then get a neck later for like warmoth or something.

just buy a bass with a maple fret board on it?

It will probably save money and hassle.

The Blacktop basses are brand new, so you're not likely to find just a body floating around quite yet.

If you really want a Blacktop Jazz with a maple fretboard, you'll most likely have to buy the bass, then get a replacement neck. Or just wait and pray that Fender starts offering them with maple boards stock.

I refuse to even try one out until they do. Silly, silly Fender...

I agree. I'm not a guru with basses but I LOVE maple necks...
Maple&Rosewood - meh. I wish my P-Bass (although it's not that great) had a maple neck & maple fretboard...

1. Buy a Blacktop Jazz
2. Buy an Allparts/Warmoth/Mighty Mite/Used Fender-Squier Maple neck
3. Switch out the tuners
4. Sell your Rosewood neck
5. In the end you'll probably only have to spend about $40-$50 extra
