    So I picked up a really cool bass at my local music store this weekend. It's an E-series Squier MIJ. It's pretty beat up in some places so I'm thinking I'll do a refin. Looking at Inca Silver, Ice Blue Metalic and Vintage Cream. Also might do a stain of some sort, but still unsure. I bought a 62 ri b/w/b pickguard for it. I'm hoping it fits because the standard ones don't.

    I'm also debating swapping out the pups and the bridge. I don't know why, but I always kinda feel bad swapping out parts on an older bass though, like I'm watering down its authenticity. Thoughts?

    It plays and sounds great! Couldn't be happier.:hyper:

    the pics from my camera are terrible, sorry for the quality.


  2. Cool bass, but it doesnt really have collectors value and with the fact its worn even if it did it still wouldnt have much, its a players bass so mod away.

    Don't refinish it, that's what's cool about it is that it's beat up.

    I'm down with the "played for years" look. But this is more like the "I don't take care of my sh!t look".

    Not sure we'll see.

    Mij goodness. I wouldn't change a thing but if you do decide to do a refin, I would look at uncommon colors to see what's out there.

    MIJ E-series are the best ever. I'd say keep the finish!
  7. Many would aruge there 3rd best for vintage squiers, Sq and Jv taking 1st and 2nd place.

    Two words: Emerald green and white pearloid w/ matching HS.

    The problem with the above statement is, I don't ordinarily like perloid, plus it was more than 2 words.

    This is what my research has shown as well.

    I'm wondering if there's a way to fix the large dents and dings without having to do a total refin.
