Well, I went to a local family owned music store. And bought a used bass. It's a Squire II P-bass. It's in a red finish, maple neck and fretboard. Everything works great. The E tuner needs to be cleaned badly. There are a few scratches here and there. Great tone, IMO, the pickups are a tad bit weak though. But, I only paid $100 for it. But, I plan on some major upgrading. I'm gonna throw a badass II bridge on it, and put some SD Quarter Pounders on it. And shield the control cavity. Also.... refinish it. I'm practicaly (sp?) gonna make it look like Steve Harris' bass. Blue flake finish, and a black mirror pickguard. I can't find a red wine mirror pickguard. Also, I'm gonna sand off the Squire II logo, and have. Powerslave in the Maiden font painted on it. Since someone off this board already took the name "The Trooper" I have 2 questions, does anyone know where I can find a red wine mirror pickguard? And, will a standard P-Bass pickguard fit the Squire II?
