Here is my Black MIM P bass. I believe its an 04 or 05 model due to the MZ4 serial number.







I got the bass completely stock besides a gold pickguard.

Heres what I did so far:
- Kahler mirror pickguard
- Gotoh 201 Bridge
- Schaller strap locks
- Awesome "IN EDDIE WE TRUST" sticker I found under my desk.

Pretty standard crap thats not really SHOCKING!

I also ordered some stuff thats coming next week:
- Badass Bass Bridge II
- Seymour Duncan SPB 3 pups
- Rotosound SH77 Steve Harris Strings

I have a Brass nut for the bass as well:



Deciding whether or not to put it in.

Coming up in two weeks:
-More Screws!
-New Neck Plate
-Fender Maple Neck or maybe a purpleheart Warmoth.
-Painted on "binding" like Steve's. (Definitly not the same color as his) (Most likely White or if I can a Chrome color to match the hardware.
-Hipshot tuners (For the new neck)
-?????????

The bass is tuned to only E STANDARD. And to cover maiden tunes

Let me know what you guys think!

Thanks

I wouldn't call this close to a build. You're swapping out parts. It looks nice, but you didn't build anything

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

also, why the hell are there so many screwholes in the pickguard?


Those look like he did it no? Looks like a good bass to mod, hope you have fun and make it to be a little more respectable!

I am missing a few screws and the ones in the middle is for the thumb rest and a pickup cover I believe.

I have a few questions about your bass. YGPM.
