There's a guy on TDPRI selling the tuners off a 72 Mustang - http://www.tdpri.com/phpclassifieds/showproduct.php/product/11969/cat/30/date/1225864177

They're the exact same scale. And while P's & J's are different widths at the nut, you should be fine with any J neck fitting in a Precision neckpocket. It's actually somewhat common for people to ...

What colours did the original Musicmaster basses come in? I've seen early 70's ones come up on ebay in different custom colours... I always thought Fender didn't put anything out in the custom colours ...
