    She's an Arctic White Fender MIM with Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders dropped in. I replaced the stock white pickguard with a Dark Black Pearloid pickguard. I also plan on getting a new bridge =) Enjoy the pictures!!

    I'd like to formally thank every member on this board who has guided me through the process of ordering this bad girl. If you're one of these people, well...you probably don't even remember me, but I've gotten a lot of help from the TB forums. Thanks everyone! =)

    Looking and probably sounding sweet.

    I have a MIM P Bass. Other mods I did include shielding, tusq nut, fret leveling, hipshot tuner, brass knobs. I thought about a BABASS II bridge, but decided on a standard replacement bridge. http://www.wdmusic.com/bass_bridge_chrome_24422_prd1.htm

    I was thinking about the BadAss II, but a bunch of people have that :p I'll probably end up getting it anyway, but just in case I decide to go for something a little more unique, I've also been looking at both the Gotoh and Hipshot bridges. What do you guys recommend?

    What's wrong with the bridge that's on there? Personally, I don't think Ps and Js with more mass at the bridge sound like Ps and Js anymore. Of course, that's just me--I'd just throw a bridge cover on there and call it a day.

    Nice lookin' bass.
