    Still available is my modded Squier 5-string P bass.

    I used a drill to make space under the pickguard for the Wilkinson 5-string pickup. Currently, it is wired with only the P pickup on the volume and tone controls. J is currently there for looks and thumb rest.

    A new pickguard is in order, and the intrepid modder will want to clean up my "route". I also drilled a tiny hole through the back while drilling for a pickup screw. I even think you could place a sheet of adhesive pickguard material over the current guard if you weren't up to the task of cutting out a whole new guard.

    As a bonus, it has a barely-played, tension balanced set of D'addario XL nickel strings, 145-40 from bassstringsonline.com, so the B actually sounds decent for a 34" scale.

    Act now and it's yours for $215 shipped in the CONUS.

    Here's some pictures of the pickup route and the hole through the back. The route could be cleaned up quickly with a chisel or router.

    Is this the model with the 2" nut? Also do you have any idea what the approximate weight is?

    Yup, 2" nut, 19mm string spacing at the bridge. I'd estimate 9-10 pounds.

    I'm taking a major hit at my current price, but I'm willing to let it go for $200, just to get it into the hands of someone who will love and rehabilitate it!
