Rather than hog the Show Us Your Basses thread, I decided to chronicle my Squier on a new thread.
I guess I am a bit OCD; the crooked pot, the wavy pickguard, and… darn it, I want those classic P-Pass looking pickups instead of the rail pickups! So, I decided to invest in some parts for my Squier. I know there’s risk, but I’m going to chalk this up to a learning experience.
So, I decided to replaced the strat style knobs and pots with classic P-Bass knobs and solid shaft pots, and I bought a set of Seymour Duncan PJ pickups. This PJ has the signal jack in the butt of the body like a Telecaster, so I ordered a replacement jack to replace the stripped jack in my Squier.
I wondering what’s under the pickguard; I’m a little worried, but hopefully I it won’t be too bad (the done when the rail pickups were installed). At this stage I am way better mechanically than I am “BASSically.”
