    Sorry, I don't know much about basses. But just wanted to know if this type of body with this type of routing allows fitment of a split coil precision bass pickup, in addition to the standard jazz bass single coil. Or would you have to do additional routing to fit a split coil? thanks. [​IMG]

    Umm not sure without measuring- but it looks like a soap bar humbucker sized route.

    Are those through body holes for a five string???

    :cool:
    nope- you would have to route the body- I think/ I could be way off here- it would be cool to just plug a P pup there and make it a P/J, but....I think you would need to cut a bit of wood..

    BUT!! Then you could get this sweet pickguard for it to hide any weird cuts etc.

    Needs routing.

    Even with a tight stagger a split-P is 93mm wide x 56mm long. That's more than a Jazz single, MM or a soapbar takes.
