i've posted in the GB&C thread to little help. so i will ask here. i've got a squier p-bass standard that i bought from a friend and am looking to fix it up. re wire it, new pickups, tunning machines and nut. and need a little help finding info and advice.

at the moment. the main things i'm looking for advice on are:
Pickups
volume pots
tone pot
bridge(possibly)

its got the p bass and jazz bass pick up configuration.

i bought it for $40 from my buddy who hasn't used it in years. and i'm just making it look new again.

Try these:

Duncan Quarter Pounder Jazz and Vintage P-bass pickups
CTS pots (500K for the tone)
Leo Quan Badass II or Babicz Full Contact bridge

You might want to try a less powerful P-bass pickup, as it is always going to be a lot louder than the Jazz pickup. Most P/J setups I've seen are such that the Jazz pickup sounds almost dead in comparison to the Precision pickup.

I wouldn't change the pots unless there is something wrong with the stock pots.

+1 for quarter pounds, also throwing GFS pups out there since they're cheap and better than stock

as for the bridge, get one of these:

they're cheap, heavy, and well machined
