Yeah, they're not expensive and seem well made. Same with the G&L tribute line.

I've already promised myself, though, that my next bass is gonna be one of those Hohner Steinberger clones, because I've always needed headless 80sness in my life.
This is an excellent rectangle

The three tone pots give so many different sound options. It can be traditional, bright, gritty, grunty, or whatever you want.
Is that what you did here? Volume, high-pass (bass cut), low-pass (treble cut)?

My Jaguar bass has a Nordstrand MM pickup that sounds amazing, but the bass-cut pot I put in wasn't doing it for me as much. I know that that's down to the capacitor value I put in, and I want to mess with it (possibly on my breadboard), but was curious what you've got in yours as a possible starting point.

It is a Mojotone Musicman board. It is all prewired and such.

No problem. It is supposed to be vintage correct so I wanted to give it a try. :D

The neck had a few dings that were bugging me, so I drop filled them with super glue and then sanded it smooth. The spots are where the dings were. Then I re applied dye and some clear. Looking good and feeling way better. :) Neck is getting closer to being finished. :D

Tuners mounted and neck installed. Much improved. No pocket gap. Love it! I also prefer the green neck to the brown. :)
