    Hey folks! I’m going to offer this as a whole bass for a little while before I part it out, just in case someone is looking for this specific type of setup.

    I bought this Modern Player Starcaster new, and had some major modifications done:

    Installed Curtis Novak BS-DS Bisonic/Darkstar pickups

    Installed ACG EQ-01 filter based preamp, as well as the John East BLI-01 mounted in a custom bezel. Had a battery box mounted on the back for convenience. It does not sit completely flush, but it’s worth it for the convenience.

    Installed Hipshot USA ultralite tuners and a Babicz FCH bridge.

    Had the frets professionally dressed and a new corian nut installed by the great Pat Woodward.

    There are two large marks on the top, but other than that the bass is very clean. Will ship in a case, but the case is in somewhat rough shape.

    I would sell the whole setup for 1200 plus actual shipping. If you’re interested in any parts (loaded neck/pickups/preamp/body/bridge) also let me know, as I’m planning to go down that route after a week or so.
