I figured out that a SS bass neck will just about work on a LP body is you move the bridge to where the tailpiece is... Now here is the thing... the neck on my electra lp broke off a while back.. and... I have thins univox beatlebass neck that has the string spacing of a guitar [WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS] so I'm thinking on putting that neck on the lp and like using a guitar bridge and pickup and tuning it like a tenor bass... thoughts anyone?


you could just use the LP tailpiece as a bar bridge a la the bridges on Gretsch guitars or Les Paul Juniors... you'd have to drill it for four strings or use a short trapeze tailpiece like a Hofner and groove the top of the stoptail. the latter would probably be more practical. if you got the string spacing JUST RIGHT using a guitar pickup could work really well with the strings balanced between two polepieces, or if you use something like a Hot Rails or a SuperTron spacing is irrelevant.

That is a good idea. But. No I mean this neck has guitar string spacing.. There is no taper from the nut to the heel :lol: [like a 30" scale tenor guitar neck...] It will line up with guitar pickups... When I bought it this was not known :picard: Or I would have passed.. I am thinking about using my LP because well I sort'a sawed it's neck off one day..

:hug:
I was going through old records the other day and found this [snow white] and a few other children's records... And Elwood had given me this pickup and I had bought that neck to go with the pickup but was un happy with all my options because I wanted it to be cool and a little crazy. Then when I got up yesterday I thought of those records and of something I read about Pat Smear having this Ric in the early Germs days that he used a record as a pick guard and it all feel into place :thumb:

Be sure to give it jag plates, otherwise the pickguard (assuming your scrapping the rhythm circuit) just looks awkwardly empty.
