REPOSTED: Bronco Musicmaster Project 99 percent complete
***This is reposted because the original post link is corrupt***
I bid on a squier musicmaster on ebay and won. The reason I won was because I was trying to bid $150.00, but accidently bid $1500. Long/short the seller had to re list since I screwed up the first one. And since I didn't get it the second time either, I decided to make my own:
o 2009 Bronco body/neck
o Ping tuners
o Custom Headstock Decal designed Ronny Taylor custom decals
o MusicMaster Pickguard from Jeannie Pickguards
o Veneered PG by chuck norriss
o Black witch hat knobs
o Black PG and PUP screws
o 7.6k noiseless 4 pole custom wound MM bass pickup by John Benson Custom Pickups
o 250k CTS pots, .047 orange drop cap Wiring harness by John Benson Custom Pickups
o Switchcraft output jack
o 4 saddle thru body MM bridge
Currently strung with the stock strings from my SS jag, but I'm looking for suggestions for something
different than I'm already using.
Here's what I'm using:
o Coronado: XL Chromes
o Precision: LaBella Flats
o Jazz: LaBella Rounds
o Axcellerator: SS lo riders
o THunderbird: Fender 7250
o SS Jaguar: GHS Pressure wound
o ThunderStick: Boomers
This was the project from hell, and everything that could have gone wrong did, so I'm on project vacation right now.
Great job sir.
Enjoy it, you got a beauty right there.
Very, very nice. I like it... I like it a lot!
But for God's sake man, for everything you have done to this bass put some decent strings on it LOL! The stock Jag strings are crap, which is why you took them off that bass in the first place!
I'd maybe start with the same strings as on the Jag... or maybe some Chromes, which sound great on my Bronco project:
black & tan ftw
Luke S Mouse Luke S Mouse,
This thread stopped working for awhile, I'm glad to see it working again, because I'm really looking forward to string suggestions.
FourBanger, tell me about tapewounds, I've never tried them.
Tapewounds have similar construction to flatwounds but the outer wrap is nylon ribbon, not metal ribbon like flatwounds.
If you want a lesson on Tapewounds listen to this guy, but pay attention to the whole video, not just the opening tone.
Some say Tapewounds can do a surprising imitation of broken-in rooundwounds, flatwounds, and somehwat of an upright all at the same time.
Was that decal printed from a file or was it hand-done? I ask becaus eI might like one myself one day.
FourBanger, I order the decal from Ronny Taylor custom decals
I guess I should specify, is the maker able to easily duplicate the decal to your knowledge or was it a one-off?
It's a one of a kind custom made to my specs
