Bass6 Neck on a Strat ??

Hey guys,

I am new here. Not a first time Warmoth owner, I have a Tele neck I am putting on a Tele project, which is almost done.

In typical fashion, I am already looking for a next project... :headbang:

I really want a Bass VI (or Bass6). I thought about buying a Squier but I have a feeling I will not be thrilled with it. The neck and electronics being the weakest links...

So now I am looking at getting a Warmoth Bass6 neck and body. But I have a Squier strat body with 3 p90's that I would love to turn into a Bass VI. 

I know Warmoth says these Bass6 necks only work with the Warmoth Bass6 bodies. BUT, the specs say standard 4 bolt strat neck pockets, so what am I missing? Is it a bridge position thing?

Any insight or experience here would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Welcome to the forum.

I am not sure which specs you have seen but these are quite different.

Take a look by scrolling to the bottom of the following two pages.  Note the position of the holes for the neck mounting.

https://warmoth.com/index.php/bass6-body-builder

https://warmoth.com/index.php/bass6-neck-builder

Then compare it to the position of the holes on a Strat neck.

One will not simply fit into the other and also a Bass VI has a 30" scale length which is also different to the design of a Strat.

And here is a thread which has lots of links which should be useful in general.

Thanks for the reply.  I think what was throwing me off was, "Standard 4 Bolt" mounting holes and "Strat neck pocket shape".

I have already started spec'ing out a Bass6 body as well, but just wanted to ask the question.

Thanks again!
