2023-01-31 bass with humbucker, tone and vol pots

View of the fastened-down bass, all functional. The bridge is _just_ long enough to get proper intonation.
The tone control on the bass has a subtle effect, compared to my 3-string guitar. The volume control smoothly reduces volume to zero with no hum. Very pleased!
