This started as thefretwire short-scale P-bass kit. I upgraded the tuners to Grover Vintage (through Fret Wire), put in a Seymour Duncan 1/4 pounder, had all the hardware be a mix of chrome/black, and put a maple veneer on the pickguard, and here is what is looks like. Sounds great. A fun to play short-scale bass. A great kit, that I will come back to thefretwire.
