  1. Hi, my father gave me a bass guitar years ago. I basically have used it as art to just hang on my wall. He has always been a massive beatles fan and his birthday is coming up. The bass needs a little work. im not too worried about refinishing or restoring how it looks. i just want it to work. the input jack, volume pot, and nut are all gone. I would like to try to keep the original pickups in the guitar, but would like to redo all the other electronics while i am fixing the volume and input. What i need help with is what kind of nut, volume tone pots, and switches to use. I also need help with how to wire it all up. Also, if its not too hard to find i would like to look at getting a new bridge and pickups down the road. Do you guys know where i could find info on any of this stuff. Thanks for all the help! I am going to attach pictures of the guitar to try and help show what i need help with.
  2. Sweet. That is what I did so far. Maybe one day I will feel comfortable enough to drill or find someone to take it to. It doesn't look too bad. The only real fear I have is the ferrule pull through the front eventually. It looks like it should be fine. I knew I was spelling ferrule wrong. Haha. Thanks so much for the help.
  3. Hey, i just got a used schecter c-1. i love the guitar. its a string through. i didnt realize but the previous owner lost the ferrels and tried to put larger ferrels in the rear of the guitar by filing out one of the holes. its only the top e string. i bought new ferrels that fit and they work fine, but there is one hole that is a good bit too wide in the rear of the guitar. The ferrel just drops losely in the hole. Is there any easy fix to this? I thought about filling the hole but i have no good way to drill it back out. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
