FS/FT: Fender Amer. Spec. P/J "customized"
So I put alot of thought and effort into this 'project'... thought it would be "the bass"- but it just isn't working for me :bawl: I have a few other P's- so I don't have to 'make it work'... bass plays nicely- just, sadly, doesn't feel right for me! It is set up with a volume and blend pots... just use the blend pot as the 'tone control'...
Heres what she is made of:
Amer. Spec. P bass body (thx SeismicAssault-TB)
Amer. Spec. J neck (The Bay...)
Lindy Fralin P & J(+10%) p/u's (thx Eric Swaim-TB)
Fender Hi-mass bridge
Fender Custom Shop 'plaid' neckplate
CTS 500k volume and blend pots (Stew-Mac)
Switchcraft input jack
Fender (Amer. Std.) Tortoise pg
Allparts Chrome Heavy Knurl Barrel Knobs
Currently strung with brand new LaBella 760QL quarter rounds (.042-.060-.082-.104)
Has a few minor scratches and one very small 'dent'on the front of body and the back of the body could use a buff and polish (has some light marks)... neck is in perfect shape! The pickguard is a bit older and is swirly and scuffed.
Am interested in a 'mint green' or 'vintage cream' Sterling Ray34 Classic Active Electric Bass + a few dollars... or let me know what you have.
Would prefer a 'local trade or sale' (I am near Baltimore, Maryland) but will ship if necessary. Sale price is $725.00 + shipping CONUS.
I am leaving the country from Feb.18-Mar.7... but thought I would post, anyway, see if there is interest!
Heres a post to the original 'project'. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/ame...mation-908739/
and two more...
couple more pics showing J p/u route and 'Custom Shop' neckplate...
A few questions, if you don't mind:
How would you describe its native tone? Thick? Dark? Bright? Thumpy? Articulate?
What kind of wood is the body made from?
How much does she weigh?
I would describe as 'articulate'. I wanted the Fralins for their 'clarity' (have several other Fralin p/u's)... I tend to play a bit hard- and they 'tell all'!
I really don't know the wood type- my luthier thought it is Alder... but doesn't know for sure. (he routed it for the J-p/u)
Weight is... 8.75lbs.
just weighed-in at Post Office:
heres a few more pics!
heres a few more pics!
... on hold- pending trade... with 'Bglosh' :bassist:
... and off to Maine- to Bglosh!
