So here goes. I've seen a lot of really amazing things around here and the day will come when I'll make something original, but today is not that day. It seems like a lot of guys build their confidence on a rebuild before they dive into a full on custom (unless you're PilotJones of course, love that build man...) so it seems like a good first step to me. I've always had mixed feelings about what to do with this bass... I've wanted to sell it, put the money towards something else but the sentimentality of it being my first bass always held me up. So I compromised and dropped in a Seymour Duncan quarter pound p/u and loved what it did for the sound. But, here again I've got the urge to play with it. So this time around i'm gonna add a pickup and some new paint. The Plan: Step 1 - Disassemble & inventory parts Step 2 - Strip/ sand Step 3 - Add MM p/u (and maybe a preamp?) Step 4 - Paint I wanna breathe some new life into the instrument that made me fall in love with all things low and boomy. So enough jibber jabber, here she is.
