Over the years, I have found myself custom wiring a lot of basses and while I have some fun doing it, there are ideas that never get fulfilled... because I don't know where to find the parts. For example, I am modding a Squier Deluxe Active Jazz V and put an OBP-3 preamp in it. On Aguilar's site, they describe how to make the mid frequency sweepable. "Just add this dual 500k linear pot and a .004 and .190 capacitor, a few 1 meg resistors for this and that and POW! Audio ectasy!" Well, where can I find these sorts of things? Not Radio Shack... not Allparts... (guess they aren't quite ALLparts then, are they?!?!) For that matter, take the Warwick MEC preamps with the stacked Vol/Pan WITH Push/Pull... where are those at? And John East preamps have a stacked Bass/Treb with Push pull... Even something as simple as a 2 or 3 way DPDT mini switch that can mount through a body and not just a control plate is a hard enough find. Who carries this stuff and how do I get it? I have nutty ideas for this bass and no way to make them happen, no matter how many holes I drill!
