    Well after I got this thing finished i'd figure i'd share this with all you people. I got this bass from a fellow tb'er maddanthony_59

    Its a 1980s Aria Pro II SB Elite II, all I had to really do was to put pickups in but im not a fan of active eq's so I gutted what was left and started from scratch. After much thought I decided to wire it up volume volume 3 way toggle and 2 mini toggles one for each pickup and that give me series humbucking or neck coil (the neck coils are pretty close to jazz bass p/up location) and after adjusting pickups its sounds pretty awesome.

    Pickups are bartolini w4cbc set and mini toggles they switch between series humbucking and the coil closest to the neck which puts them pretty close to jazz bass pickup locations the neck has a thinner nut 1.65" i think compaired to my sb 1000 which is 1.75" and the neck has a thinner profile as well
  6. Nice looking bass with some awesome sounding mods!
