    Just finished my first parts build. Wanted a Pbass so I decided
    it would fun to put one together. Here is the rundown:
    -Blue metallic (LPBish) P body from old Bently I picked up
    -Squire neck that the guy selling put a Fender Precision logo
    on. Has Jazz dimensions though.
    -Badass II Bridge
    -Dimarzio P pups
    -New Fender P dome knobs
    -Pickguardian Tort pickguard

    Looks awesome, feels great, and sounds so good. I am now
    ready to do a P-J bass next. Gonna up it a little with the next
    one on the body and neck quality. and actually get a real
    Am. Fender P neck.

    Thanks guys. Between this and my new SUB, my Jazz basses
    are getting jealous.

    Grats on getting the build finished! I like the hardware choices.
    While it wouldn't be my first choice for a color combo, I would actually really dig it with a fretless neck for some reason.

    Congrats, looks awesome. Any between MM and P style basses, what more do you really need? Lots of precisions flying around, hope to pick up my first P bass tomorrow.
