    High Mass Brass Bridge and Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders added together with some copper shielding. Pickguard needed a little filing to allow the neck pickup in.
    Not convinced that the control plate is right..... Now waiting for some of Ernie Ball's Regular Slinkies to finish it off.....

    Finally decided on a Black all over theme..... No Kiwi Rugby influences here.....
    Would like to source a Black Jack Socket and Nut if possible...

    The Seymour Duncans really give it a solid kick.
    I am absolutely loving this Bass now.....

    You might find the black parts at Jaycar, Real Parts, or there is always Ebay but you need to make sure whether you need metric or Yankee thread.

    Like the upgrades. Looks really classy now.

    Still has the stock strings on it and I am certain that it will be much better when I put some Ernie Balls on it in a few days..... Might record a couple of scales then..... and again when my new Speaker arrives.....
    But it will only be on my phone.....

    Love this photo! Almost looks like it's made from clear glass with a black burst around the edge. It's like you can see the table through the guitar!

    Thanks Zandit, The quality of the finish on this thing is really quite impressive, especially for the price.....
    I'm hoping to finally fire a shot in anger with it this weekend, Jammin' with a couple of guys that I have never played music with before.....
