Squier/Maya rebuild: I call it 'Squaya'
Wasn't sure where to post this, but I figured that as I've got a lot of routing and rebuilding/refinishing to do, this was as good a place as any.
This is a mixture parts I've been given, but haven't been able to do anything with for 2 years due to money. Hoping to get it finished soon though.
Here's what I've got, plus a photoshopped-scratchplate to give an idea of where I'm going with this. I've since been given a p-bass pickup, which I'm going to fit in a wooden cover to fill the big ugly rout by the bridge. The plan is to make my first 'good' bass, to my own specifications at as low a cost as possible.

Carved out the pickup slot with chisels and a drill-press. Also fit the neck using the same method. I also now have all the hardware needed to finish it, and the wood for the pup cover. Didn't realise making wooden pickup covers was so bloomin' difficult!

Well, looks like this build might not get finished (at least not for a while). Turns out the neck has some awful backbow, that's unfixable. I can't afford to replace the neck, but maybe someday I'll rebuild one for the bass. For now, at least, it's going into hiding :(

Unfixable how? You could loosen the truss rod completely and then clamp the neck into a slight front bow. It may even be a case of just needing a washer or two before the truss rod nut to get enough adjustment out of it. Don't throw in the towel quite yet.
