Restoration of my 1975 Gibson Ripper bass.

I purchased this 1975 Gibison Ripper bass off of Ebay for $320.00. I knew for that price it would be a "Project bass"It's not in bad shape but it does look like it has been played for 28 years.

As you can see it has been modified to a P-J configuration and the 3 point bridge has been replaced with a Badass bridge. it sounds great but I would like to get it back to the original Ripper configuration. I'm having a hard time finding Ripper pickups though. I also have a question about the schematic I can't figure out. Here's a list of parts I need.

You can check on my Progress if you want to see how far I've gotten . If any one can help me out here with any info email me at
