A singer I work with just gave me an old bass that he's had in his apartment for at least 10 years. It's a Stinger P/J in black with rosewood fretboard. It needs a tuner, a saddle screw and a jack plate.
I know these aren't highly though of, so since it doesn't seem like I'll be destroying a great bass I thought I'd use it to do some fun mods. I'd really like to strip the body and have it natural, but before I wade in, can anyone tell me what the body's made of and what it's likely to look like stripped?
I'll be putting in a set of inexpensive but decent (hopefully) pickups, changing the electronics etc. The idea is to have something decent for a low price to take around smaller gigs.
Any help appreciated! Thanks.
