When I aquired some newer, better basses, I decided to fix up my first bass, a Squire P-Bass. I sanded it down and got new pickups, bridge cover, finger rest and pickguard, but I never went through with painting it (I actually put a "test coat" of orange latex paint so I could see what it would look like, but it's not all removed yet) and now I just carry it wherever around the house (say if I want to get funky whilst eating at the dinner table or on the john) just to reduce risk of damaging my nicer ones. Is there anyone else who does this? If so post pics! She's a beaut', ain't she?
