I have one. I used to have two. That bass looks OK. Pro Tones were made by Cort in Korea. They used Mighty Mite pickups. Mine had gold hardware.
The mods are reasonable and would make the bass better. I have replaced the pickups on mine and put in a preamp. The body and neck are fantastic, although the neck is wide...pretty much P bass spacing. Wide, but thin enough front to back to be comfortable.
He might have had to widen the pickup cavities to fit the SD's in. Upon a closer look, it appears the SD's fit, but are narrow>I can't tell if he narrowed the neck at all. The stock pickguard is fairly thin...only two layers and it appears he still has the stock pickguard on it, altered to accommodate the wider pickup and extra controls.
I like the looks of his bass.
