Estimation Deficiency
I am upgrading and older Ibanez SR 505 5 string bass for free just charging for the parts. First thing I found was it needed a fret job and that will be pricey of course.I thought the pickups were Korean made Bartolinis MK -1s and bought a $195 preamp to fix the problem. They are Ibanez pickups ,$246 for Bartolini 72M4C set. Pulled part of the bridge ground wire out so I took off the bridge , base plate is bent over an 1/8th of an inch and rusted. Deal on ebay for a Babicz $114 shipped to me.Nut fell of when I took the strings off to remove the bridge , it is badly disfigured and a new one is $18.65 with the shipping added. Bartolinis don't come with mounting screws , jackplate and a pair of knobs (42ish with nut)  More than $630 into this now and yet to get fretjob. Some things just don't work out the way you plan them? Oh yeah the bass amp I bought 3/13 is going back for warranty repairs, it is not my week.
