    Here's a modded SX SPJ62.

    It came white with a black pickguard, and one of the tragic new headstocks.

    Took the headstock to a more standard shape with a hacksaw and a dremel.

    Removed all the hardware and electronics, coated the bass with industrial grade stripper. After about 30 minutes, all the paint and finish wipes away with paper towels and water.

    Reinstalled the hardware, replaced p'ups with Kent Armstrongs. Cut the pickguard to cover the control cavity only. Awaiting p-bass p'up cover.

    Bought some ulta-thin faux mother-of-pearl taupe inlay material, and used a tiny grinding point to hand-route openings for the inlays on the fretboard. Used liquid wood to fill in ares that I messed up (and there were plenty).

    Here's a couple of pics:
