bn5 - gk ready

fbass bn5 gk-ready

my first thought of the roland gk pickup kit was just about drilling the extra side jack for the 13pin connector and drilling a tunnel under the hex pickup to the control cavity, something that i could mess around with my dremel tool.  apparently i was totally wrong after talking to mr. george furlanettl, the luthier who makes my bass.  and i'm very glad that i live within the driving distance to the fbass shop.
