If you want a good tele-style bass, how about a G&L ASAT bass?

Cool, I guess, I don't like that its HH either, but I thought I'd suggest it. And its £1000? Wow, I didn't know that..

You can't just put a 20 fret neck into that 21 fret neck hole.

You'd have to do some routing and/or bridge movement.

Why exactly do you want to change the neck before you've even seen what quality it is yet?

Cool.

If you still want a different neck after getting it, you could take it off and send it to one of the luthiers on here. I'm sure they'd be more than willing to make a new neck for it.

Heck, I would, depending on how some other builds I've got planned are going.

I've played some Shine basses and they're actually pretty good quality. I'd put them on a level with Cort basses, great quality and sound but with a surprising (but pleasing) price tag. Going by this, I think it would be a solid base for a mod project.

Something else you might want to look into:

I agree, I think the better thing would be to just buy a body and build it yourself, because if you're going to just replace everything on it, why not have a good wood?

The bass is solid ash. And it costs a fair amount to ship a body from Warmoth to England.

You'd be insane to paint that beautiful ash body black, just look at the grain!

As for electronics, EMG's or Duncan Basslines. Can't go wrong.
