    Had this up before and can't edit the post...

    I got a new guard for it and added some pics.

    First thing is that this bass is flat out sick. The neck is amazing and the pickup is incredible. The tone is refined and warm, but also thick and punchy. Unfortunately, tonally it just doesn't work with anything I do. I have tried to love P basses, but I just can't. They just do not work for my sound and the way I play (dodging TB lightning bolt now). It's like, I love it but I'm not in love with it...

    Here are the specs:

    I basically got everything from TBer EskimoSpy and it was 2-tone burst with this horrible plastic gold pickguard.

    Alder body, I think Allparts.
    Warmoth Slim P bass profile neck w/ th 21st fret shaved off
    Schaller Roller Bridge
    Brand new hipshot vintage (long stem) tuners with drop d tuner
    Curtis Novak Darkstar
    Custom Paint by TB's own streetscenes
    2 custom Mike Quick PGs (matte black and silver sparkle)
    Custom "Thunder" P bass logo by TBer Lavmonga (just applied over paint and totally removable)
    Oh... it currently has the green strings which actually look really great
    *** Additional Disclosures*** I routed from the pickup to the control cavity and it is a pretty amatuer job but it works. Everything is covered with the pickguard.
    There is also a small ding in the paint on the back of body near the bottom of the bass, I have no idea how it got there.
    Looking for $650 OBO shipped in a decent gigbag. I might also consider a trade or partial trade, but not sure what I am looking for.

    I'd be happy to ship it with the green and yellow strings.

    Yeah, they are cool old-school pickups. I am just not a very old school player.

    Thanks guys, you are far too kind. But hey, coming from 2 TBers of this caliber it must be true, right?:D

    Price drop to $650... I have been asked about parting out, the problem is that I would need someone to take the body and neck together as they are custom painted.
