Fender P-bass, cool custom tattoo finish - Lookie Lookie!!
I bought this from a TBer several years ago. Fender P-bass with a great custom tattoo-esque paint job done by a tattoo artist in St. Louis. He used paint markers and the colors really pop! Has a Mighty Mite after market neck with a narrower jazz bass width at the nut. The clear pick guard has a crack by the knobs - it doesn't effect anything but wanted to mention it. Dimarzio pickup with tons-o-growl. The guy I bought it from said the body was an older Fender; the neck pocket has been painted so no way to know for sure. Bass weighs about 9 lbs on the bathroom scale.
This really is a great sounding bass and is a true a head-turner. I've had a lot of questions, compliments and thumbs-ups at gigs. It's truly one of a kind. The back of the body is solid black (sorry, forgot to take a pic of the back). Comes with the older hard case pictured.
$750 shipped to CONUS only. Payment by Paypal. No trades please. Questions welcomed. More pics available.

That is my old bass, let's talk about me getting it back

Sure... I'm listening. :D Did you sell it to me? It's been a great bass - lots of gigs over the past few years. It's in the same shape as it was when I got it. Hit me up or PM me.

Who did the artwork on this? I am in STL and would love to have something similar done. Please share!

I'm not sure who the artist was but I'm talking with the guy I bought it from and he may know... I'll see if he remembers.

Bass on hold. The guy I bought it from wants it back... :hyper: I'll take names for back-ups.

Cool bass - and even cooler - going home to papa!

wow. 'nuff said.

Can't blame you for wanting it back. I was all prepared to not like it, but that's really cool!
|jbossolo ||02-21-2013 07:37 AM |
Really cool axe, makes me happy to see it "going back home".
Congrats to both!

The prodigal bass.

Nice! A happy ending! Ya, when I heard "tattoo art," I wasn't expecting that. That's quite beautiful. Well hopefully you can hang onto it this time ;)
|Jaymi ||02-22-2013 04:20 AM |
I plan to!! I am really more into 'artsy' finishes
|RudeMood ||02-22-2013 07:35 AM |
I've seen a lot of custom painted things that didn't look that good - but this one is killer. I've enjoyed having it for the last few years.

Glad you had fun with it....I did too when I had it initially
