I don't really understand why basses have 24 frets, I mean, I've never seen a bassist playing more than the 12 fret.

Why did you buy an EB-0 in the first place if you wanted a fretless bass with different pickups and bridge?

Sounds to me like an excuse.

Whell.... you can do it yourself in you really wanted to.

New pickups can go from 10$ to 250$ all depending on the quality you want! But installing new pickups are EXPENSIVE! You will more than likely get ripped off. Like 75$ ripped off.

Defretting probably won't be so bad, it may just take a while. maybe about 150$ for a week of work.

New electronics will probably be about 50$, just remember to ask ALOT of quesions about what can be done with your electronics, and yes it will be a long and probably somewhat confusing convorsation. But damn is it worth it! Electronics, if done right and gone beyond the standard volume/volume/tone bullshit can be REALLY, REALLY cool sounding!

To be honest, a pair of Jazz pups, plus defretting, plus a new bridge, plus new electronics is going to cost far more than the bass is worth, and in the end it'll still sound crappy and play poorly. If you really want to do mods, you're better off getting a Fender knockoff and modding that, since the majority of aftermarket parts are made to fit Fenders.

Not all passive electronics suck beleive it or not. This is how much it will cost to do it yourself
10$ for a soldering iron to make connections.
5-20$ (probably optional) for stuff like a box cutter, needle nose, wire cutters, etc (jsut buy the things you dont' have already)
15$ (optional), for some helping hands. This just holds the components in place for easy soldering.
30$ for new components. (including wire)
and 10-500$ for new pickup(s)

imo, buy a new bass, will prob be cheaper than paying someone to defret/instal new pickups , bridge, and electronics, along with the cost of the parts


he could just buy a new neck. www.stewmac.com has some good ones
