    I'm not a bass player, and know very little about the instrument, but maybe, just maybe I'm considering making one for a buddy, like a Vintage Precision Bass mixed with a Jazz bass body.

    Where can I find drawings for them? something like the T Downs Tele drawings?

    I built these 2 so if you have any questions let me know. The swamp ash one is a P/J bass with a J bass bridge pickup. RBZ_Basses.jpg

    Fender made an "alternate universe" guitar some time ago that had a J bass body, but it was scaled down to 7/8. I think the bodies in general are a bit larger than a guitar's.

    a buddy of mine recently acquired an early 70's jazz bass body and an early 70's precision bass fretless neck. apparently someone had mated the two and was playing it that way. we thought it kinda strange because one of the basses has the 3 screw neckplate and the other appears to have been designed for 4 bolt. but it bolted together and intonation was on. left a few extra holes though unfortunately
