Hello all, Thanks to ChrisCassisi I was able to score a late 90's LB75 Fretless in great condition and at a great price. The bass came modified for EMG DC40's and without pups or a pre. Perfect project bass! Here is the plan. I am going with SGD Sidewinders for pickups and a bartolini ezq for the pre in an 18v config. Here is the link to the schematic I will be using (it is on the last page with the switchable Q and bass boost). I will most likely change the "Q switch" option with a 50K linear pot (a la Alembic CVQ style) due to there being 5 pots. Also I will replace the 250K blend with a 500K. If everything goes as planned the control layout should be: Vol - Blend - Filter Freq - Variable Q - Bass Boost I will get back home to Japan in a 2 weeks and I can begin. I will post pics of the process and I will get some sound clips posted when everything is done. I really have to thank the wife for such a nice xmas gift.
