Originally a customer order that was never collected, this instrument has languished at the back of my nearest Fender dealership in its cardboard box for a few years. BNIB, it just cost me the sort of money that unmolested pre-owned examples now fetch.
In my opinion, a white/black/white pickguard would look infinitely better against Candy Apple Red than the stock B/W/B. I envisage replacing the Gotoh 201B lookalike bridge with the genuine article. Parts drawer pickup options available to me include EMG GZR, SD/Basslines Pro Active or the ol' Seymour Duncan Active EQ "switch" pickups.
I do not usually care very much for PJ pickup pairings. This instrument will be an exception. The extra pickup would be especially useful if I ever bought a fretless Squire VM P and swapped the necks over.
No pics until;
a) I have finished modifying
b) I sort out a photo hosting account.
I fear the Geeks, even when they bear GIFs.
