1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please make yourself at home! I've deleted the previous "migration" threads, please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

    Some of you know how I like Fenderbird basses Well here is a new kind. Or perhaps I should call it a Thunder-Jag. It is a parts bass made with a Jaguar body, Mighty Mite neck, and Thunderbird pickups.

    I like it - it almost looks like the "other" T-birds, but with a Fender neck... I actually could see a Fenderbird build in my future - I've always thought they were kinda cool...

    Ya ... the Jag body is sorta like a non reverse Thunderbird, but smoother and no neck dive.

    I am enjoying the grunt of the t-bird pickups.

    It is a fun bass to play ... I run the neck volume full, the tone full and roll back the bridge volume ...

    I think I'd like to do a 51 style p-bass with 1 t-bird pickup, and one volume and one tone

    Looking closer at the pics, is it the bridge p-up or the bridge that's tilted? The gap doesn't seem to be the same on both sides.

    Looks to be the p-up, which is ironic considering that route is the stock one.

    Either way, looks really awesome!
