    my beloved #1, my 1st bass... she has been a dear friend, but damn was she unruly.
    years of sweat and booze hasn't been kind to her electronics, and I had to swap a pickup out years ago.
    well, the pots started to have dead spots and the hum and buzz was plain silly.
    soooo.... I eviscerated her, shielded the b'jesus out of the cavities and changed the pots. it was a good time to add the series/parallel switch .
    here's a few pictures...

    the old stuff was so gnarly.

    I love how there are brass shielding plates under the control cavity and the pickups already, plus that sexy flat strip o' metal grounding the bridge.

    neck pickup (the one replaced 14 years ago) has a cracked magnet. I super glued it back together. changed some of the foam.
