    Thanks, I'll have a good look at it on my bench tomorrow.

    It appeared to me that the factory didn't drill pilot holes first and, in addition, did not screw some in straight. When I attempted adjustment, I was very concerned with the possibility of breaking or stripping the heads of the screws. Rather than deal with the screw holes, I carefully made the screw holes in the pups a bit larger. I also had to add some foam under the bridge pup for better adjustment.

    Thanks again for the helpful replies. I decided to wait until my TI Flats came in before I tend to it. They are here now, so it's bench time !

    Hopefully the TI set will work with the top load bridge. I've read they will and also read they are too long. We'll see.

    Ran into an issue with the winding length of my TI Flats.

    Here's a thread I started on it if anyone cares to take a look

    Apparently it is the sonic blue one.. but it looks too light for that. Mint green pickguard

    ^ the sonic blue is bluey white. More white.
     
  14. The Sonic Blue Mustang PJ's are nearly white. I had to put one next to an Olympic White one to be sure of the difference. The Sonic Blue ones are a ghostly, cool white as opposed to the warmer Olympic White.

    Here's my Sonic Blue Mustang PJ with Pau Ferro fretboard:

    There’s always the MIJ reissues floating around out there with the regular mustang pickups.

    I love my Mustang PJ and would really like to see a 30" P Bass. I know they released a P Bass Junior a number of years ago, but it had a 28.xx" scale length and a 3/4 size body and no tone knob. I'd like a 30"-30.5" scale with a standard body size. Since I'm just dreaming, I'll add a maple fretboard to that.
