Hey guys. Well, its time.. I'm going to start modding my SX62.. A total over haul. Its going to be repainted a color called "Oh-So-Orange". Its gold metallica orange that has some pearl in it. I'll probably end up doing a black pearloid pickguard. Where, as far as mods, I'm getting the nut replaced, new bridge and an active electronics system. What I'm wanting to do is get a battery compartment routed in the back. I was thinking of moving the jack to the side of the bass rather on top of it like it is now leaving an extra space for preamp control. Also, I'm wanting to cut the headstock down to resemble something like a fender headstock... First of all, how much can I expect to spend to have a new jack hole, battery compartment routed, and headstock cut?? Second, are there any active preamp/pickup setups anyone would suggest? I really know nothing about newer brands of pickups so any suggestions would be great. I do want the neck pickup to stay a J pickup, but any suggests for the bridge?? Should I leave it J or look at going to something else?? Since this is a major overhaul, any other mods I should consider would be greatly appreciated!
