Fender Musicmaster Project question

    Hello all, I acquired a 1976 musicmaster and I wanted to add some better pickups in it and change the bridge. I was going to route out a spot for some bartolini p-bass pickups, and maybe throw on a badass 1. I was curious to other opinions on how this bass will sound. Is it worth the trouble. I have heard some really good sounds out of improved classic musicmasters. Also the bridge does not have the right holes for this bass, but I was wondering if the new one could be installed (drill new holes) effectively in place of the old one. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
