Ok, I have an old bass guitar that I was going to sell for like 20 bucks, but I figured it'd be more fun to try to mod. I got it for 10 last summer and its just been sitting around. It'd be nice to have another instrument to play with and whatever. When I opened it up it had all this nasty smelling glue and rust everywhere. Its got these gross "select" pickups supposedly designed by emg, but they sound like ass. I'm on a budget, but I'm in no rush so I don't really need to get it all the way done for a long time, It would be nice have it finished though...


Anyways, I want to do the following things:






            I'm nearing the end of the sanding process, here are some pics:

            Getting that darn stain off!


            Gotta fill the holes from where I ripped out the bridge. (The screws were all stripped out and so I just had to yank and cut, pretty crude, but oh well, sanding it down anyways..)

            Ok, now for question time...







                        P.S. Sorry for all the nooby questions, I've done some research, but I just want some reassurance on things being this my first project like this and all...

                        generally i figure everybody will say a badass bridge, and what kind of pickups are you looking for? active or passive? And i would replace the electronics.

                        i think a nice translucent red would be good for thsis (like an Sg kinda finish)

                        bridge: Leo Quan Badass.

                        pickups: check Carvin. good pickups for pretty cheap

                        and yes, replace all the electronics

                        wow, thanks for all the response, you guys are awesome! Will def check Carvin. I'll go for passive probably, but I'm not against active...
