Bronco Musicmaster Project 99% complete
I bid on a squier musicmaster on ebay and won. The reason I won was because I was trying to bid $150.00, but accidently bid $1500. Long/short the seller had to relist since I screwed up the first one. And since I didnít get it the second time either, I decided to make my own:
o 2009 Squier Bronco Body and Neck
o Ping Tuners
o Custom Bronco Musicmaster Headstock decal by Ronny Taylor Custom Decals
o MM Pickguard from Jeannie Pickguards
o Veneered the PG in Maple chuck norriss
o Custom 4 pole 7.6k noiseless Pickup by John Benson
o Wiring harness with 250k CTS pots, .047 orange drop cap wired to the pickup by John
o Switchcraft output jack
o Black PUP and PG screws
o Black witch hat knobs
o 4 saddle thur body bridge
Itís currently strung with the stock strings from my SS jag, so Iím looking for some suggestions on something different to use. This is what I have on my other basses already:
o Coronado: XL Chromes
o Precision: LaBella Flats
o Jazz: LaBella round I think (maybe on AXC)
o Axcellerator: SS lo riders I think (maybe on Jazz)
o Thunderbird: Fender 7250
o SS Jaguar: GHS Pressure wound
o ThunderStick: GHS Boomers
This project fought me the whole way, and everything that could go wrong, did. So right now, Iím on project vacation.
It's a bronco master? Cool bass!
The clear parts of the decal didn't come out so clear, how come?
What's the best way to disguise those old pickguard holes? I'd love to put a musicmaster pickguard on my bronco.
Fill them with a toothpick and wood glue and touch 'em up with some paint.
Did you choose the Y style Pings over the Clover-ish shape or was that what you had access to?
