: Hey, I have a two year old 4 string fender jazz bass and would like to have a 5 string. Is there a way to convert mine? Can I buy a new neck, will it fit? What else will I need to do? Pickups? Anybody?
You're gonna need a new neck, bridge, and pickups. This will cost more and be a lot more hassle than just buying a used 5 string Jazz bass. Not to mention that you will still have your old 4 string as well. Better just buy a 5 string and forget about converting your 4 string.
