    I have a couple electronic bugs to work out, but my FenderBird build is complete.

    I had a spare bridge, and a spare neck laying around so I decided to something a little different, so I started collecting parts.

    MIM Pbass neck, EMG JV active pickups, and an ash body.

    I got the body in about a week ago and got to work.

    Testing a different neck, it’s just as good as the other one. But now she’s a TeleBird.

    new strap, bridge, and thumbrest.
