This is my first post after lurking for months if not years at this forum. Like a lot before me Im planning on making a budget Bass VI. I've been over the threads you guys have and while it's a Lot on wisdom and info I just wanted to be sure i got my recipe right I plan on buying an Ibanez talman short scale bass. And while keeping the p Bass pickup I'm.planning on getting a Squier jaguar guitar pickups to fill the neck and bridge positions. I'm also going for a hardtail rather than a jag bridge. Im hoping to get a loaded jaguar pickguard so I can get a hold of the necessary switches and pots. I don't foresee any big problems aside from the wiring. This way I'm investing $300 give or take. I'm I missing something? Any input is welcome. Greetings from the Caribbean!
