    He Preeb, this thread is already a little bit old, but I love this bass and I'm a guitar player but now I want to build this bass!!
    Yust two questions, are the body roundovers the same as on a stratocaster (hopefully because the bits are very expensive) has the pickguard the same size as the old preci basses (54..). Thank you (greate 335 build as well!!!)

    Same roundover.
    The guard is the second smaller version that goes with the rounded/contoured bodies (54-56)

    I'm glad this got resurrected. I would have missed it otherwise. Finding a chunky neck is my great mission, and it's great to see what can be accomplished with skill and patience.

    I am bumping this up.
    Why?
    Because it is ***king awesome.

    I am making one now but a 51...I need some of those nice large ferrules and they are tough to find!
    Damn you Fender for not making accurate reproductions!
