    it's basically a black MIM jazz body routed for a MM pup in the bridge, battery cavity, and side jack that I got for $30. Got an Allparts Geddy replacement neck that's gonna get a graphite nut once I sand it down to fit the slot. Bought Bartolini MM4CBC and 9CBJD(Classic Bass series) neck pup and NTBT preamp. either a MIM or BadassII bridge. tuners from a Schecter Model T, and Sadowsky stainless strings

    Frankenfretlessbass: ibanez roadstar 2 guitar body with all the trem routs filled up, hohner neck that had a split fingerboard so I replaced it with a ebony one, ep eb neck pickup, tele guitar neck bridge pickup, maple pickguard, 2 volume and a 3 way switch, ebony/rosewood bridge and a wenge tailpiece. Basically any time I get a weird idea I do it to this bass instead of mutilating something good. And the thing actually sounds good.
