Pbass mod

Further mods on my favourite Pbass ..     OBP-3 on board preamp was installed years ago, and the 9v battery was squeezed into the cavity ...    things work ..  but replacing battery was always very difficult ..     thanks for my bass buddy Kurt for sourcing me some new toys, and it's time to mess around with the bass further ..  

Objectives for the day are:

  1. Routing a proper battery case cavity
  2. Move the wiring for battery connector
  3. Install new pickup
