    I have been thinking more...usually that confuses me.

    One thing I see a lot of bass players doing...and I thought about too when I went to a class D amp... is to get a PA amp for power, and run a...

    Not just the tweeds. The black tolex ones too. They've been more popular with guitarists than bass players for most of my life.

    Well with an ES you have to build the control circuit outside the bass anyway so you can do some testing before the final installation. I'd have done more if that on my last build. If I had, I am...

    The site owner seems to like the sound of the pup. Worth a shot. Looks cool in any case.

    I used to think my first bass, a used Epiphone Newport was junk. Now they go for $1200 to $1800 on Reverb....

    I think any build where you look at a tree and think "That'd make a nice guitar!" Is going to be a slow build ;-)

    This is looking more like an "ask Adam". I suppose it's possible that you got the wrong neck for this body. Maybe you got the right neck for an FS-1?

    It may be a Gibson scale length not Fender. 24.75" would be about what you have and would go with a tun-o-matic bridge.

    There are a lot of different scale lengths

    I would start by using shielded cable between all of the components and by shielding the pickup cavities. Maybe try that first. If you're not hearing much noise, then doing more is probably overkill....

    One small difference between your bass and the original Mustangs is that the original Mustangs had a metal control plate (like a Jazz bass). So, it didn't need to run a ground (earth) wire between...
