    I want it done right so that means I dont want to do it at home. I just bought a 57' AV p bass and decided this is THE bass for me but I would like to add a J pickup in the bridge position to complete it.

    I know this may not be good for resale but I plan on keepin this baby for a long time and recently got rid of my Jazz bass to fund this.

    Can anyone recommend me a place to take my bass or ship the body over to have the pickup space routed and a 3 way selector switch put in?

    I live in Maryland if you know anyone local.
    If I have to ship it to get it done thats fine too.

    I've heard good things about www.philtone.com. Never used him personally though...

    That's THE guy right there. He is currently refretting my '79 MM Sabre (if that tells you anything about how much I trust him). Only negative is that Phil is in great demand and you will wait because of this. But if you are patient, he will do the best job that's possible. He used to work for PRS before going out on his own if that tells you anything...
