    If you're worried about the wiring, you can buy a complete bass from them. Granted, it'll cost you more, but at least you'll not have that worry. I don't actully know if they come with diagrams et cetera, but it's not that hard, and most electronics manafacturers put the diagrams on their websites for you. Besides that it'd be bolt together, solder up, setup and play.

    Add in stain/paint if you don't get a prepainted body.

    Duncan has some really good wiring diagrams on their pickup site.

    I've been thinking of going this route for my next bass. Though I might just get a replacement body and neck for my pbass using warmoth parts. I've also been thinking about Carvin's kits.

    No, actually we don't assemble basses, we just sell the parts. If you're worried about assembly you could have somebody like Nino Valenti do it for you. It's really up to your own skills and how much you want to get your hands dirty. :)

    All of the pickups and preamps we sell come with wiring diagrams and instructions, though the Duncan preamps are probably the easiest to wire.

    Oh, I'm sorry then *embarrased*, I could've sworn, especially the Geckos can be bought pre-assembled. My mistake, I apologize.
