Right now it's System Three T-88 structural adhesive. A clear shellac and Tru Oil aerosol. Mostly elbow grease though.

A 10-hole Pickguard? Is that custom, standard? Mine has 14 and next to impossible to switch out without custom ordering

Cool stuff all through here, y'all!

Does a Squier VM P Bass with SPB-3s, a Babicz bridge and a '94ish blocked and bound MIJ 75RI jazz neck count as tricked out?

The pickups and bridge were already in there when I bought the VM used. The neck came off the jazz I've owned for 18 years. Best. Neck. Ever.

CTS pots and Switchcraft jack on the way. I think I want to switch out the pickguard but not quite sure to what.

Here's a silly shot of the two of us.

As you might discern from my P bass, I also dig the gold ano guard on my P. Still sorta looking for an ano guard for my Jazz, but I'm digging the naked look at the moment.

Nice looking bass there, Gordster.
