    I'm interested in ditching my P bass's pickguard and buying one of the control plates. Does anybody have any pictures of a Pbass with a control plate?

    I think your P Bass has routing going through it under the pickguard and its not covered, so if you pull this off, you might still have to have a pickguard on it

    It does have routing under it, but that won't be a problem. Any pictures?

    I don't think I have ever heard of a control plate for a P. I'll bump this just in case there is such a thing.

    I've only heard of this with the J-Bass, where the control plate and pickguard are seperate things.

    Seems a little beat to me for the price. I paid less than that for my 78 P that is in better shape.
  11. thats 100% NOT STOCK - but i've seen that 'mod' a few times - its because the pickguard tends to crack around the input jack (stepping on the cord usually accelerates the process)
