    I bought this squire p bass back in 05 to put a kahler bridge on on it.After I sold the bridge it sat around and became a real beater.Now I`ve decided to fix her while I gather parts for my next build.
    Punk bass and busted.
    P4240204.
    The old cut out for the bridge
    101_2357.
    101_2358.
    The block for the new bridge.
    101_2360.
    The jazz pickup filler.
    101_2361.
    The damage.
    101_2356.

    I think I might just paint it black and just clean it up.I might add a humbucker and white pickgaurd.Any ideas Im open as long as its cheapish.

    Looking beautiful. I like the contour on the horns a lot. It's definitely the little things. ;)
