How hard to convert guitar to bass?

Recommended Posts

The distance from the bridge to the nut is going to be different, and the width of a bass neck/fretboard is going to be wider. So once you route the neck joint to the proper spec, and get the bridge in its proper place, it should be smooth sailing. :D

Everything else is just wiring?

You could probably have a body made in the style you want for pennies these days, what with all the online vendors, why not just buy a new one?

Or you could get a 6 string bass by changing strings. I guess you'd need about 0.020-0.90 to be able to tune down that far, but if you can get strigns that fat, it's the easiest way. :D
