a couple months ago i picked up a new MIM P-bass for cheap with the intention of customizing it. Well, last night I drank too much pepsi and decided to break down and do it. What a blast! Attached are a "before" and "after" picture. The cosmetic mods are obvious: chrome bridge cover, white pickup covers and tugbar. The drilling went much more smoothly than I had expected. Under the hood, I swapped out the stock pickup for a Seymour Duncan SPB-1 with a vintage-style grounding plate and added a .1uF orange drop tone capacitor. discontinued-formula fender 9050 flatwounds and a foam mute under the bridge complete the picture. plug into the Buster 2x15 stack and voila! smooth, old-school P-bass sound. i melted.
