Help from Fender P bass owners please

Could someone with a P bass measure the distance between the bottom of the neck to the top of the first pickup please ? :pray:t2:

I don’t own a Fender P-Bass but I found PDFs of to scale drawings and even DWG files.
DWG files are for CAD Software which should provide you with an exact 3D model. CAD Editors are very expensive but I think you’ll find a viewer for the file withouth having to pay money.

Overall this seems to be a really nice resource for blueprints/models of originals: https://sites.google.com/site/guitarplanscollection/pdf-files/fender-ish

Of course it would be better to have someone who owns a Fender P Bass to confirm. Still thought I share the resource as I think it might be useful to you.

Edit:
Sorry just checked. The DWG files are very scarce and there isn’t a Fender P Bass on there. The PDF drawing should still be to scale though :slight_smile:

It is precisely 4.0" from the leading edge of the pickup closest to the neck to the 20th fret wire on my Squier Precision Bass.

Well bugger :face_with_symbols_over_mouth: my bass is 4 1/4 inches between the 20th fretwire and the pickup so a standard pick guard won’t fit . Suppose I could get a blank and make my own :thinking:

Hold on. Ok, from the edge of the front pick to the edge of the rosewood: Right about 3-5/8"

@terb there was an American sit com called “I Dream of Jeannie” 70’s
or for you “I Dream of Greenie” She just looks so classic.

yeah it’s a 2004 model so not much more than 15yr old but still pretty wrecked, that’s true :joy: still a really excellent instrument
