It's summer and I decided to finally do something with this old short scale Kay bass that I've had sitting around since I bought it at a garage sale for five bucks in high school. The neck is pretty useless, the nut came unglued (it was plastic anyways) and the slab rosewood fretboard is peeling off starting at the zero fret. So the bass has never really been used as such by myself. Lately I've had a desire for an offset body guitar like a Jaguar, this bass isn't being used, I think I can manage to turn this into a pretty cool little guitar. Here it is disassembled. As you can see, it's got a pretty large rout there, and the pickguard doesn't have any holes cut in it besides the pots and four small holes for the pickup screws. The pickup itself actually sits on the outside. The width of the holes match a single coil's height adjustment screws pretty perfectly. Luckily the neck pocket looks to be 2 3/16", so a warmoth 22 fret Jaguar boat neck will go in there. My main concern here is the bridge. There's no rout for springs or anything so I'll have to go with a fixed bridge. I was thinking a tune-o-matic stoptail with a mustang bridge. A bigsby would be awesome, but maybe a little too complicated. There you have it. Though you guys might like to see my little project. Any ideas/suggestions/concerns? Any bridge ideas are very welcome, as well as any information regarding scale length.
