    Just completed this build:
    - Warmoth '54 P-Bass body (pre-finished Blonde)
    - Chinese Neck (ebay $95) while I wait for the Warmoth neck I ordered
    - Schaller BM Tuners (easy to flip for reverse headstock)
    - SD Quarter Pounder
    - Pre-wired '51-'56 P-Bass control harness w/.068uF (pretty dark) cap (Reverb/Wainwright Guitars)
    - Babicz bridge
    - Gold control plate and knobs from WD Music
    - D'Addario Half-Rounds 50-105
    The neck isn't a perfect fit with the Warmoth pocket. However, I was able to get it set and adjust the relief and get the action down to 7/64ths which works for me. The Schallers and Babicz are solid and hold tuning and intonation. Guitar plays and sounds great.
