So I'm planning on working my late 80's SB-1 over. Right now, it looks like I've owned it for nearly 20 years, but I want it to look like I've gigged it for 20 years. The neck has darkened nicely (maple board) as they do, and it does show the carelessness of my teenage years as well. I have subscribed to the "dirt keeps the funk" theory with this bass for the last 15 yrs or so, and it shows. But recently I've come under the spell of those old Ps like George Porter and Pino have, and I can't spend the bucks for something like that. By SB is black on black with the crinkle finish metal pickguard. I'm after a tort and the Fenders I've seen don't look like they'll fit without extra holes. Any suggestions for a custom if they're not readily available? Also, I had a cream Dimarzio J put in back in 88 or 89. The output doesn't quite keep up with the MFD P, and I'm wondering if an MFD J would do better & what a good source would be if so. So, to the revisionist part. I want to give it (for lack of a better term) the "Relic" treatment. I've always hated the gloss neck finish & would like to take some off in the wear spots on the back. Also, I'd like to take paint off the body so it looks worn in a natural way. Any suggestions?
