    Howdy everyone,
    I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. My bass habit started with an alvarez 5 which was painfully cramped string spacing(for me). I sold that to get a sunburst Squier Precision Special 5. Only now am I making it into a real bass. I am buying a 5 string passive P-pickup to put in the neck position and I'm trying to figure out a humbucker for the bridge. I'm removing the pickguard and making a metal control plate. The only part I'm nervous about at all is the pickup routing.
    My other project is Series 10 (don't laugh) that I bought for $30. (okay, laugh if you like). I thought I would just rip the frets out but then it sounded too nice and has grotoh tuners. Now I've bought a spare neck to rip the frets out of to try my hand in the fretless world(I figure I have a shot since I started my musical endeavors on trombone). If I don't like it, I'll slap the old neck back on and kiss it goodbye. (The pepto-bismol pink color isn't my favorite...)
    That's all for now. This is only one of my hobbies, but the one hobby I always come back to. I look forward to learning from yall.
