Ive decided that i would like to make my p bass copy look like Paul Simonon's p bass

Here is my p bass copy, picked up for £30, worked for about a month, electrics are horrible

Got a few questions regarding painting the bass/electronics etc

What would be the best way to go about sanding the bass?

Where would be the best place on the net to get a set of p bass pick ups + tone and volume pots? (UK preferably)

That bass is disgusting.

Carved his name into it, with what looks like a rock or something.
Its silly.

Will you be carving "PAUL" into yours too?
I personally use a heat gun to remove the paint on cheap guitars. The thick crappy paint will peel off like silly putty.
Suhr Custom, Flaxwood Rautia or Grosh Tele thru
HBE Medicine Bawl Wah
Analogman BiComp
Texas Two Step OD
Fulltone Ultimate Octave/Fuzz
Boss CE-2
TC Nova Delay
SLO-100, 65 London or Bogner Shiva
Ask me about any of this stuff!
No i wont be carving "paul" into it :P I was thinking the same style as that (white on black) then seeing where it goes from then

How much would a heat gun be? Gonna ask around friends and family if they have one but i doubt it
