Picked up a Chinese Squier P-bass locally for $50. Someone had apparently stepped on the plugged in cable when it was in a stand and snapped the jack and tip of the pickguard clean off. No biggie, as it was going to get a white pearloid pickguard and I have plenty of parts to get it working. Of course, the quality control in the China factories being what it is, the bridge wasn't in the right place. Easy fix. Neck and frets were nasty. Nothing that a little steel wool and Simple Green couldn't fix. Wiring's done, just waiting on the pickguard (should arrive a week from Tuesday). Getting chrome knobs with white pearloid tops. Will post pics when it's done.
