    Wow! I love it. Very sharp and I bet is sounds awesome. I love that you added the bridge cover too. It ties in perfectly.

  6. Two words: HELLS YEAH.

    I love that pickguard color - when I get my matching black P and J with maple fingerboards (in....say, thirty years ;) ) that's the color pickguard they're getting.

    Excellent work!

    View attachment 61910 ... You have a very cool bass there ... but please be advised ... the use of Dark Star pickups can become an addiction!

    Wow. I thought I would never say that, but that's a stunning looking P bass! The pickups really adds to the retro vibe, and look like they can take care of business and then more. I'd add some chrome knobs as well!

    I never heard the sound of Darkstars. Could you post some clips or point me to a specific song where you're sure a darkstar was used?

    Very nice bass, really nice.
