  2. [quote name='Pea Turgh' timestamp='1508164655' post='3390171'] Did the scratchplate get sanded too? Looks weird. Was it together enough to play, or did it arrive disassembled? If it’s a good player and you had it for a good price, screw the retail/collectibility! Some sort of off white would look nice. [/quote] No that’s just a combination of crap photo and dirt. It was stored in pieces in a garage somewhere. Off white would be nice or maybe just black with the tort guard. (Maybe black and a mirror pickguard ala Phil lynott)
  3. [quote name='Marc S' timestamp='1508163978' post='3390165'] Looking at it - I'd definitely try a light sanding, then a coat of some sort of sealant... is Nitro an option for you? I'm not necessarily a fan of natural finish on basses - but I think this one could look great. I just think it's nice with Rosewood board and that tort plate Definitely get it re-fretted though It's a nice project to have in the pipeline [/quote] Yeah a nitro finish is what I was thinking of doing. A refret will definitely happen at some stage. I might string it with flatwounds before that to see what it’s like. (Having never played a fretless or flatwounds)
  4. Sorry about the late reply. I’ve been stupidly buying another JV project. That one is a strat though and I’m not sure anyone would be interested in that on here. As you can see from the attached pictures the bass needs a lot of work. (You may want to wash your eyes out afterwards). You may also notice that it doesn’t have a jv neck plate. Don’t worry I do have it just haven’t had time to pop it on. Thanks for all the responses. They do help a lot. And thanks for the heads up on the JV PJ pickups I’ve seen on eBay. I think I’ve come to the decision that there isn’t much point in restoring it to original. I think I’ll just get a nice pickup and paint it in a fender custom colour. Let me know what you think. Cheers Michael
  5. Hello, I recently picked up a Squier JV p bass project that needs a bit of work. Well a lot of work really. It’s had a hard life. I’ll try to get some pics up later to show you the extent of work it’s going to need. Anyway. The bass isn’t complete. I’m missing a pickup and bridge. As well as finish and frets but more on the latter two later. How do people feel about the original pickups? Now there is a set of JV bass pickups on eBay that I was thinking of getting but it’s a PJ set and I have no need for a jazz bridge pickup. Or would I just be as well getting an after market set? Fender or Seymour Duncan etc. I’m not too worried about getting a replacement bridge but does anyone know if the hardware is nickel or chrome? None into the finish and frets. During its earlier years someone has covered it to a fretless. Not the greatest job but I will covert it back to fretted at some point. The previous owner told me he started to remove the finish so it could be refinished easier. I don’t know why. My question is, is it worth refinishing in an original colour? I’m not looking to sell it at all but just in case in years to come I fancy something else what would people prefer? Anyway let me know what you think and I’ll try to get some pictures up later or tomorrow. Cheers Michael
