Aria makeover 3

A little progress...

I blocked the old Bridge Pickup-rout. A new rout will be made to fit the P-Bass pickups:

Here's a test-fitting of the new aluminium Scratchplate:

I just need to cut a hole for the P-Bass Pickup, drill for Pots and Switch and make the edges pretty. Any comments on the Design ?

What a project! I have an Aria RE550 too! It's far from a real Rickenbacker, but it's got way more character than anything off-the-shelf nowadays.

I loaded in a Seymour Duncan Basslines Rick bridge pickup, and I'm planning on designing my own active preamp with a blend and active EQ.

Did you finish this bass yet?
