    Squire P Bass upgrade.

    Hey all. I did up this Squire P Bass up for my favorite customer my nephew Wade. I leveled crowned and polished the frets & installed a new Graphtech Black Tusq nut. The saddles are Graphtech Black Tusq as well. All the electrical has been replaced with CTS 250k pots. A paper & oil tone cap a set of Seymour Duncan Quarter Pound pickup's & a Switchcraft Jack We got the pickguard from Warmoth which I topped it off with full covers & a thumb rest. It plays real nice now & buzz free & sounds thick but still has some nice snap & articulation to the notes. Very strong. A definite upgrade from what it was. He should get a lot of good jam time with this little bomb.

    Cool--looks & sounds like a job well done--and it sounds like it's a keeper.

    I'll would bet that you are Wade's favourite uncle.
    I bought a relic'd guitar because I liked the way it sounded. Then I refinished it because I didn't like the way it looked.

    ... be my favorite uncle (No disrespect to my actual uncles)

    A few years ago a store was totally revamping their store & they sold off some stuff real cheap.
    They had a Squier P Bass body & neck for quite cheap--but I realized once I bought the hardware & the electronics & possibly paid someone to help me put it together (At least the electronics-unless I got a loaded pickguard) I would spend about as much as what ti woudl have cost me to buy one the way I liked it (& it wasn't fretless)
    So if I could do what some of you can do--I might have bought it.
    Although shortly after I decided against it a guy came in & bought it--saying he could fix it up.

    Thats really cool!

    I think those Squier Bass's are the most bang for the buck bass you can ever get, stock. if you like Fenders. Ive had good experiences with Entry level ibanez and other bass guitars, but the feel of Fender basses are different and I prefer them over anything else.
