    It looks to me that the bridge is on the wrong spot, it is not centered with the pick-ups or the bridge cover holes.

    If that is all that is wrong it is an easy fix, there must be somebody in your City who would be able to do it.

    Good luck

    It looks as if the pick-guard doesn't fit the neck pup right, it seems that the cutout doesn't want to go over the four knubs that the screws go into(is there a technical term for those??), especially evident in the third picture how the light is reflecting around on the neck pup. If that's the problem, maybe just get some files and file each one down till it fits. The pick-guard that is, not the pup covers

    Edit: I agree with the bridge comment too.

    However, it also appears that the bridge pickup is somewhat kaddywhampus. Could be the photo angle tho' also . . .

    OP, could you give us more information on what the issues here are?

    maybe he just wants to ditch the bass. and he wants a luthier to have it to remember him by.
