So I finally convinced my dad to trade me his bullet bass, it was the first bass I ever played and the bass I learned to play on. It's costing me my gibson les paul, but to me this bass is priceless... anyway... Its a fender USA bullet, he's allready swapped the pickups with duncans, I'm going to mod it since it's a bass I'll never sell I'm not really worried about resale value or keeping it original. I'm planning on dropping a darkstar in, and my question is can I modify the existing pickguard (bullet pickguard with standard P cutout) to fit the darkstar, or am I going to need an entirely new pickguard? Also planning to throw a new bridge on, either a hipshot A or a badass II. I know it's not neccesary, but what the hell. Regardless I'm pretty pumped, I've been trying to get my hands on this bass for a decade.
