I have an old Squire bass, my first bass bought back in the mid 80's. It has a Warmoth neck, Kahler bridge an a old Carvin pu. The body has been stripped down to the bare wood. It plays and sounds pretty good. Here's my idea. I would like to have the top of the body planed down ¼" and have a nice solid quilted maple top (no pickguard) put on it. I know, it's alot of work for a bass that cost me less than $160 new, but the body is poplar or basswood I think and looks pretty good. If this becomes reality I will probably have the body routed so I can add a jazz pu in the bridge position, and will need to have access to the electronics thru the back of course. I would just like some feedback on this idea. If anyone has done this or if anyone knows a good luthier who would do it. Thanks in advance for any help.
