    thought i'd fill you in on my latest project....

    i'm modding my dearmond starfire - modifying the pickups for series/parallel switching and reworking some of the wiring...it's in pretty bad shape for a 2/3 year old bass !

    i've already rewired both pickups with 4-conductor wiring, and will be adding the parrallel/series switches tonight....i may post some pics if people are interested.

    any tips from the DIYers out there for earthing ? it's the thing i've had most trouble with before.

    i should have some photos available - anyone interested ?

    so far the thing's dismantled and i've got as far as adding the 4-conductor wiring to the two pickups.......the fun of reassembly ans switch mounting is yet to begin...wish me luck.

    :)
