Damn she looks purdy now. The first two pics are of the bass when I bought it. The last pics are of how she looks now. Upgrade Work: All work was done by Eric Chaz of Eric's Guitar Shop in Van Nuys California. No one but Roger and Eric touch my basses. What I did to the bass: 1.) Swapped out the Bartolini pickups with Sadowsky Humcancelling J pickups. 2.) Added the Vintage Tone Control upgrade 3.) It had the old preamp bypass switch. Since the VTC has a push/pull for the bypass we wired the switch to be a kill switch (On/Off) 4.) Finally, I had Eric cut a custom White Pearloid half/three quarter guard to my specs. It extends behind the neck pickup. I think she looks sexy as hell. I am very happy with it.
