  2. The J pickguard is unmodified, a Musiclily item purchased on Amazon. Loosened the control panel screws, and it was a perfect fit.

    The P’s control route isn’t the same as a Fender P. It required some trimming around the neck to fit. I used a Musiclily P pickguard, also purchased via Amazon, and trimmed it.

    Both instruments are players. The J neck is similar to the P neck.

    thanks!

    i think it's just slicker than snot that you have two players! :thumbsup: :laugh:

    cool that the J pickguard fit.

    i purchased a P pickguard (actually, two) from amazon but it wasn't musiclily --- i'll check because they did not curve at the controls close enough to be used...so folks should avoid that P pickguard brand i used...for their Ps, anyway. i may have to get a musiclily guard to try for a fit on my P. i'm assuming that the musiclily piece still barely covered the routes in some places? yay or nay?

  8. The Musiclily P guard had to be rotated and trimmed. Even with that, one of the screw holes could not line up enough to be secured with standard pickguard screws.

    I had no expectation of the pickguard holes lining up with the holes in the body, especially at these prices.

    That said, the P was pretty nice out of the box. The J was a project; I needed to shim the neck and replace the nut to make it playable. Again, at that price, NBD.

    ...the strings don't seem to line up. Guess it'll be even cheaper to pull the frets out of the Kmise neck on my Behringer test mule bass, to try fretless. They are sharp on the end so would have to be filed down or pulled out. A $75 flea market bass I re-necked for $36.
    $56 usd though, that's in my tightwad wheelhouse.

    @JRA
    Fretless. I've got a cheap Behringer bass with cheap kmise neck I'm planning to de-fret, but I would have tried the Glarry fretless if It'd been in stock.
    It'll be fun to diy the frets out of my test mule bass and even cheaper. Free!
    But if I do buy a Glarry though, I'm definitely joining this cool club. My fellow tightwad tone monsters.
