I agree with you completely. If an ignorant hack like me can completely shield and re-wire a passive bass in a couple hours, why can't a pro do it before boxing up the bass?
This actually reminds me that there is a great little music store in my old home town where the (sole) proprietor not only completely shields all of his stock instruments, he also dresses the frets, does a complete set up and replaces the strings. Every instrument you pick up off a rack in this store is perfectly ready to rock! He even does this to the cheap Fender knock-offs he has....
