    Just put this together from a couple of basses I had that I wasn't entirely happy with. Really pleased with the result!!

    I like it! I definitely dig blue, block inlays and rosewood fretboards.

    Yeah, that looks really cool and if it feels and plays as good as it looks you've really got something there.

    Pretty cool. Model P? That's a brutal pickup...in a good way!

    I've been totally digging white/parchment/cream pickup covers lately. In fact, I'm considering installing a set in my black-on-black P-bass clone...

    Thanks guys. It started out as two separate builds.

    A Warmoth / Allparts 60s P Replica:

    And a Fender / Allparts P Bass Pro kinda thing:

    Anyway, I wasn't entirely happy with the Fender / Allparts build and I fancied a change from the 60's P too, so I decided to take them both apart and start again.

    What I've ended up with is an Allparts Jazz Bass neck bolted onto a Warmoth body with a Nordstrand NP4 Pickup and a vintage-style Fender bridge with threaded saddles. There's some extra holes in the pickguard as you can see as it previously housed an East U-Retro but I actually like the extra holes. Gotoh tuners and strung up with old Fender rounds (the ones with the black silks)

    Plays great but not sure what it sounds like yet. I'll be plugging it into my rig over the weekend.
