As @JRA said this is @EatS1stBassist gig so I’m sure he’ll set you up.
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.
Trimmed it using what? Where they $$ ?
$10-$14 each. Trimmed with an x-acto knife.
You’re welcome, @B-Mac.
i think it's just slicker than snot that you have two players!
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?
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.
got it! thanks, Ronzo .
thanks looks great with the white pickguard

TO ALL CLUB MEMBERS
THANKS FOR ALL THE POSTS ALL YOUR BASSES LOOK GREAT!
THANKS TO B-Mac for his advice and support!
I personally enjoy each and every posting. I love seeing what you have done to personalize your Bass! The best to all of you!
The fretless is out of stock! It really does say burlywood. In the closeups
...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.
Williethump , i've probably missed it: what are you doing (trying to do)? thanks.
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.
I would like a number also, please.
anyone have a close up of the back of the headstock? wanted to see the tuning mechanisms..
