I just bought a MIM P-bass off of eBay (like $290), midnight blue finish and stock everything. I had bought it with all intents of modifying it. First, I replaced the (IMHO) P.O.S. stock bridge with a BadAss II. I absolutely love the sound of it now. It's punchy and decently bright, so much so that I have to turn the tone knob down sometimes to take out some of the punchiness. Hell, it's got more punch than Muhammed Ali! I slapped on my Dunlop straplocks and Levy XL 2.5" leather strap and it's so well balanced, its amazing. BUT There are three flaws... First, the pickguard is cracked right by the input jack...my remedy for that:I was thinking of tracking down a Fender Black Moto Pickguard. easy enough Second, the "Midnight Blue" color only looks blue part of the time...it looks mostly purple otherwise. My Remedy: Taking it to a guitar shop and seeing if they can repaint the body either a vintage white or a Candy Apple Red equivelant with a black border around the body, ala Steve Harris style. Third, the neck is slightly warped. I have a Battle of the Bands competition, first round, next Thursday and a party to play at this Sunday. I believe the neck is fine for right now, but I have to watch myself so I'm not wailing too hard on the A-string or else it will buzz like a mofo against the first fret. My Remedy: Adjust the truss rod to make the neck more concave. Now that would work if I still had a Truss Rod Bolt. Mine is completely stripped. So I was thinking of either going for a Fender neck off of eBay, a Warmoth neck or a Moses graphite P-bass neck. I was reading up on the Moses and other graphite necks and saw that they are lacking in the midrange department. And I could never let go of my midrange, I love it to death, my p-bass is a midrange machine. So I was thinking about a Fender neck, but idk about that. So I'm really thinking about getting a Warmoth P neck, with that vintage yellow oil, but they say that they are more succeptable to warpage than finished necks. So idk, your opinions would be gladly accepted.
