NBD - 1976 Greco Precision Bass

Recommended Posts

This diagram assumes that the controls are mounted on a conductive foil strip stuck to the back of the pick guard:

Ok, so this is all finished!  

I didn't get many pics of the last bits of work, but what I did was...

  • made a new wiring harness with CTS pots and the original cap,
  • cleaned up the bridge
  • sorted the pickups out and got rid of the tape and spliced wires
  • ordered a new tort pickguard
  • left all the screws in a bath of apple cider vinegar to clean them up
  • new knobs

Quick setup to get it playing better and strung up with Ernie Ball's, it's sounding great.  Nice to have a P Bass in the fold again.  I've recently ordered a Badass II and I'm going to get a black pickguard too, just to see what it's like.  Really enjoying this one and good fun to get it back into playing condition.  Cheers for all the help along the way.

Looks brilliant. Plays?

Yeah, plays great! Need a bit more work on the setup but the pickup sounds great - nice and beefy but that just may be because I'm used to playing a jazz bass. Neck is quite slim for a precision too so not a baseball bat 😀

I feel inspired! Hopefully I will find time to give my 76er a good scrub up too!
