I picked up a beat up Jay Turser Scarabé over the holiday weekend for song. I bought it because of how ugly it was. I want to use this bass to teach me about modification and repair. As it stands, it's playable, but the pick up is lousy and it could use a good set up. So far here is my laundry list of things I'd like to do to this bass: switch out all the electronics, change the bridge, refinish the body and currently matching headstock, defret it, install a pick up cover and possibly a bridge cover, and maybe just maybe throw another pick up in it. and now TB I solicit your well seasoned advice. Here is a laundry list of questions that I have before I undertake any of this: What is an affordable P-bass pickup with decent tone? (I currently play a jazz and no nothing of the split coil) If I were to add a second pick up what's my best choice? A jazz, mudbucker, Musicman, or any of the myriad of styles of pick up? I don't believe there is room for another potentiometer in the cavity right now, is there a stacked knob that I could use to independently adjust the volume on each pick up or would I have to enlarge the cavity a bit? If I were to throw another pick up in there, how difficult is it to go all Billy Sheehan dual outputs? The only aftermarket bridge I know anything about is the Badass, is there a less expensive alternative that is better than the flimsy Fender style it has now? If you have made it this far, thank you. I believe that is all of the questions I had. Any tutorials, guides, or type of advice is much appreciated. I'm pretty bad about these kinds of things, but I will attempt to keep a build log.
