    Nordstrand big singles, badass V, Hipshot tuners, Nordstrand 3 band preamp, carbon fiber nut, flat black refinish, best bass i ever had, it was stolen, working on a clone as we speak, great bass even stock, but takes the mods really well

    Damn just drooled all over my phone. I take it the Big singles required routing of the body?

    Thanks! i miss that bass, but like i said, im almost done building its clone. and the pickups upgrade was worth every penny, the stock preamp on the squier is pretty good also, works awesome with the Nordstrands

    Did you have to do some routing to make the big singles fit?

    I think there is an issue with my computer because the pictures of the 6 string jazz won't appear. Any way you can repost the pics? I'm dying to see the mod because I have massave hands and people on this site gave me the suggestion of getting a 6 string bass. Love to have it in a fender....

    Finally saw the 6 string squire. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!! What's the name of the shop that did the mod's? You should send this to fender and have them make you you're own signature series...ha ha.......no....seriously....you should!

    I changed the pups on mine with Lindy Fralin ones, I also changed the bridge with a babicz full contact and I also changed the preamp with a bass mods BEQ-12 and the bass sounds and plays amazing.....
