For starters, swap out the stock pickup, replace with a Seymour Duncan SCPB-1 or 2, and the most important thing; get the neck over to Ken Boudreau of Boudreau Guitars in CT and have the headstock re-shaped to look like a '51 P, let him check the frets and polish, and round the corners of the neck's tongue. I hate that straight bottom. As soon as Ken sends me back the neck, I'll install on the body and post a pic of the final product. More to follow. Rich Ken does incredible work. I consider myself pretty handy when it comes to general repairs and setups but Ken is the real thing and from now on, he's the only one that will touch my basses. I highly recommend him. The videos are a bit long but I think you will find them interesting. Mine is a lefty by the way. With its alder neck, Ken's craftsmanship, upgraded pickups and a high mass bridge, I'll take this baby over a Squier anyday. Add Roto 77s and it's a sweet one. The "before" pic is below. The "after" shot is coming..... Stay tuned.
