Looking forward to seeing this project. You should start a new thread for it so new comers can look in.

Corts always look nicest in cherry red / walnut finishes.

Yes, I'll start a new thread on the remake of it.

Just another thing. I had to grab a Fenix Jazz bass (a 1990, when they had the Squier production job - I've written before on them) that's been defretted. It went for £50 and was a driveable distance from me.

It had occurred to me that this could be kitted out with the Graphtech Ghost piezo system I have. Although the Cort would be a fretted roundwound and the Fenix a fretless flatwound, I might be able to compare the two piezo systems.

The trouble is that the control cavity in a Jazz is tiny (the Ghost preamp and battery would take a lot of space) and I found another problem. I started taking the bridge off and only one screw undid. Two of the others, the head turned round and round and came off. Leaving the entire threaded shank still in the bass wood. Anybody fancy a pair of crosshead earstuds? What a pain.

Upgrading and adding the piezo to the fretless came ahead of the Cort. I've started a new thread, and will add the Cort details when I get to it:
