Modifying the Schecter

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 74rickbass, Dec 29, 2004.


  1. I've been talking about it and thinking about for awile now, and the parts arrived today.

    Its a 80's schecter p-bass. I've made threads on it before...

    Long story short. It originally had no pickguard, and p/j pups.
    I added a pickguard. and added a Gibson EB-O pickup.

    Here it is now (before the mods)...

    My mods are added a full black P-bass guard. And a fender "original" p-bass pickup. The one used for the american vintage series basses. I'm gonna have 4 knobs, Vol Vol Vol Tone.

    Below are the pics of the parts and bass, and the bass with the pickguard over top. The knobs dont line up with the holes in the pickguard, but I dont care... It will just mean, it will have a small hole near the output jack when its all done.

    I'm getting everything professionally done... I'm done with screwing up mods!!! haha :p

    Thanks for looking.

  2. I have this old bass body which is badly painted white.

    So I installed the new pickup, pickgaurd. and the neck and bridge from the schecter.

    The pickup sounds great! smooth and fat with flats and nice and ringy with a lot of presence with rounds.

    I'm happy. :D

    Here is a pic
