It followed me home, honest!
Very cool. Congrats. I love that style of P-Bass.
I've always liked the Tele's, just wish they did these in 34"
Yes the style has been growing on me
The scale hasn't bothered me though.
Dont care for 30.5" scale but the 32 seems ok.
Lots of mid umph tho!
But it's not a P-bass. It's a Telecaster bass with a Tele guitar style body.
Yes but I will love it and squeeze it and call it... something other than George
True but P basses don't get talked about much around here so the confusion is understandable.
I really want one of these. The neck is very chunky right?
Congrats I love that body style.
A tad, which I like.
Measures 1 11/16" at the nut with a more vintage C, looks like constant radius on the back of neck. Fender says 9.5 radius on the fretboard. Plays real smooth
I have always loved this body style, and wonder why Fender has not pursued it with more options? If I ever get a CUSTOM bass built, it will be a true "Telecaster" body, with an ASH body in natural (or "butterscotch" tint in the clear), with tinted neck and maple board.
Now the tricky part is that I want a true "Telecaster" bridge, with a diagonally-mounted BASS pickup. AFAIK, NO ONE builds a bridge like this. The only custom basses I've seen that are even close, use a traditional bridge, then put a chrome plate with a diagonal cutout farther up with the pickup inside. WHY has no one yet duplicated the original Fender Telecaster bridge, but with a four-string BASS application? I have to believe that I am not the only one who would be interested in the bridge alone (to build my own custom) OR a custom bass using such a bridge.
Sorry to vent and hijack your thread. Congrats on your new bass! I may very well end up getting one to ease my "Telecaster Bass GAS" for awhile!
One of the very few single-cutaway basses that has pleasing lines....
very cool. the special with the mudbucker/jazz is on my short list...
Played one of those, but unfortunately it needed a neck shim done to be playable. This one has awesome tone though
