    Hey guys,

    I'm new to the forum, so a few details: Long time player, first time modifier. My main bass is an old Ricky but I don't like using it for those gigs in, shall we say, dodgier places. As such I'm modifying an old Squier P Bass, a 2001 if memory serves correctly. I've already swapped out the pickup for SD 1/4 Pounders and I've got a Badass Bridge coming in the post. BUT what would be the best machine heads? I'm swapping the chrome hardware for black and matching it up with a black scratchplate.

    Is there anything else you can suggest that I could do reasonably easily and cheaply?

    Cheers guys!

    Take a look at Hipshot. Nice tuners that aren't too expensive. I just bought some HB7 for a project bass
