I uploaded some more shots of my upgrade to this P. It's all sealed and done and I absolutely love it. It's a great bass. Good job, Fender!
Stock 2012 American Standard Maple
Factory wiring job.
Idk, call me particular but...that looks like high school electronics class.
All deboned, factory guard and electronics preserved to be lost and then found and tossed out, decades from now.
Building better ground straps and lines. This is for me, it's not going to change anything.
New electronics on new pickguard and pickups connected. Test. Good. Yay!
Wow...barely fits. But it fits.
(You can see the gap from my ground wire on the left side of the bridge here, before it got fixed; see above posts.)
I backed off the pickguard screws a bit after seeing this one.
Schaller locks installed and a *new* Levy's strap.
I just need to find some dome top knobs! I gave it a new full setup; it's a fantastic neck and this thing has TONE. Great response on the tone pot too with audible difference over the entire range. Love it. Time to scratch it up.
