    So I’ve begun work on this kinda odd build, and it should be a fun project - but we’ll see. It’ll for sure be a bit of a longer term project we’re going off on tour the 18th so I’ll get more work done on it around the 1st. So I’m kinda just putting this out there for more insight as I’m kinda new to this but I have general knowledge in most of it but also I’m kinda just shooting in the dark and hoping for the best

    So here’s the bass as I found it, very rough but I’ve been wanting to do a p bass and a T series pickup for a while so I went for it, it was already a peavey so it worked out.
    Yes that’s just a single coil guitar pickup kind of thrown in there, it was wild. Today I pulled off the pickguard to see all the fun things inside. It turned out only the one guitar pickup was wired - very poorly at that
    I also tried to just clean up the awful job The previous owner did of making a pickup cavity, and I tried some BLO on the wood to see how it looked, I also tried staying it but I didn’t like the stuff I had too much, so I’d have to find more but I’ll probably BLO for now , and dye/stain later
    I’ll finish the cavity when I get the pickup

    Let me know yalls thoughts and opinions of it, and any knowledge is greatly appreciated -

    It'll be a good sounding bass. Funny thing is, for this project the T-40 pickup almost cost as much as the "Square" bass.
