    When ordering a P-Bass body from warmoth, it is asking if I want a battery box. Do I need one? What would be the advantages/disadvantages?

    Also, it is asking what bridge pickup I want. Does anyone know if that pickup would come with the body if I pick one?
  2. If you're using active pickups like EMGs, then yes you could use a battery box.
    However, if you're using the normal, passive p bass pickups then don't get that hole routed into your brand new body. :eek:

    When it's asking for the bridge pickup, it means what shape do you want the route/hole to be made for. They're not going to give you a pickup lol but they'll drill the hole in there so you can install that respective pickup into that place :).
