I do not play this beaut… but before I found that out, I got it a pro setup, fret level, installation of a Hipshot Supertone bridge (3-point bridge retrofit, allowing improved intonation, etc --$100!) and Wilkinson tuners.
- Lightly bedroom played - some very slight swirling.
- This bridge is a great improvement; it is made for flat-topped basses (T-Birds, EBs) and on this curved top bass the luthier stabilized using gasket cork (photo) which has worked out perfectly, but still won't make me play this. Original bridge included. My post in the Parts & Repairs forum about this bridge mod.
- Tuners are silver vs. gold. If you care, you care. If you don't, you're like me. Original tuners gone, swapped for the new ones!
Do you have an "extra" P bass
of some sort under the bed? Let's swap!
Looking for something light (8.5 or less) preferably with a vintage neck profile/frets; think MIM 50's Classic, Road worn, Squier Freeman etc. Will entertain alternate offers. Pickups are unimportant, I'm looking primarily at the wood. In fact, if you have a great bass with no electronics that is something to pitch.
No need to go into cash-for-cash value here, thanks - Looking for a straight-up swap only – I plan to mod the P and as such I want to trade what I don't need for what you don't need.
Thanks for looking!
