We will start with the body. In this tutorial we will be using a simple two piece Alder body, but like I said earlier, your tastes and budget can be the judge on what tone woods or combination you would like. The first step is to sand your new body with a 60 to 150 grit sand paper. This ensures a smooth feel, even grain and uniform look on the wood. Remember to always sand with the grain of the wood and not to push down too hard.
Below is a diagram showing how a standard P-Bass split coil pickup is wired as hum-canceling pickup. The pickups are wired in series. (For another example as having them wired in parallel, check out pickup_parallel_wiring. Notice that the split coils are actually out of phase here. It does not matter in this case that the coils are out-of-phase, since there are no other pickups here. If the coils are wired in-phase, then it becomes a single coil type of wiring, and you can expect to hear hum when your are near electrical fields. If you wish to add a J-Bass pickup in the bridge position, you will likely need to wire the P-Bass as a single coil, unless you thought ahead to by a split coil Jazz Bass pickup, as mentioned earlier.
