Advice Needed: sourcing a P Bass body with JJ pickup routing in the UK

Recommended Posts

So I have a lovely Fender Japan Jazz unlined fretless currently wearing a set of EMG active Jazz pickups. I love everything about the bass apart from it weighs around 9 and a half pounds. As a result I've decided to find another body for it. 

While I'm searching however, I thought I'd see if there were any P Bass bodies that were routed for Jazz bass pickups: not PJ but JJ. I know there are companies such as Warmoth who could do this, but to avoid unplanned charges etc. I thought I'd see if there are any that could be sourced in the UK. 

Any ideas would be gratefully received. I'm not looking to spend a fortune, but a nice lightweight ash or alder one would be my preference. I'm not interested in blanks that could be routed as I don't have the tools or the talent to do it myself!

I've never been a big Fender fan guitarwise, but the prospect of customising a Telemaster body, for a single humbucker and a volume control, just makes me go wobbly.  Left handed neck on it, yummy.

Might be a project for next winter.
