    Hi. I recently came into possession of an old 1970's era P Bass with a walnut stain, brass hardware, and some CREAM Dimarzio Pickups.

    I want to do some work on the bass; maybe give it a black pickguard and some new Gloss Gold hardware. The problem is the CREAM!

    I found standard black P bass pickup covers online. Could the covers of the Dimarzios be replaced with the standard fender Pickup Covers? Do the Dimarzio Pickups even have removable covers?!

  2. AFAIK, DiMarzio covers are not removable.

    WHY!? would you want to put black covers on it!?
    Cream is so unique. You rarely see anything other than black with bass pickups.

    hahah I know line 6 man I know!
    I'm really not sure as to how I should color scheme this thing!

    The pick guard is very blemished, and the saddle adjustment on the bridge isn't too hot.
    The stickers have since been removed from the neck, which is an old Bradley P Neck.

    It sounds fantastic, and I intend on getting it a new neck.

    What about the color schemage?
    Im definately going to replace the Bridge/Pickguard/Knobs. None of them are original anyhow. Silly 1970's brass craze. :O
    Come to think of it...I yanked the knobs off yesterday...

    Im thinking Black Pickguard and gloss gold knobs/gotohbridge. Does that sound good?
    Also, finding a Fender Neck at a good price is such a hassle! Help?
