    I have what is a late 90's (I believe) MIM Fender Jazz Deluxe 5-string. I have a Bad Ass V bridge, Dimarzio Ultra Jazz 5-string pickups and an Aguilar OBP-3 preamp on order, and I wish to have these installed. I'm also interested in having shielding installed and star grounding wired in if that's possible. I'd also like to look into my options for having an active/passive switch and possibly a switch between neck/series/parallel/bridge. I also need a complete setup as the action is pretty bad right now.

    I've already gotten a quote for $245 to do the setup, star ground and install the bridge, pickups and preamp from a well-known luthier but I'd like to get some competitive bids before I go.
