    Just thought I'd share this with Talk bass as it seems a relevant subject for fellow bass enthusiasts like myself . I recently decided to take the first steps to building my own Precision bass... I bought all the parts over the space of four months and over the last weekend I started putting it all together. There were a lot of cock ups, mistakes to learn from and hurdles to pass.. but I managed to finish it with my head held high. It took me a hell of a lot of hours over the space of a three days but it was worth it.

    Here are the specs:

    ~ Fender MIM tobacco sunburst body.
    ~ Mighty Mite Fender-licensed Precision 70s neck
    ~ Schaller Tuners.
    ~ Allparts tortoise shell pick guard.
    ~ Hipshot A style Brass Bridge.
    ~ Fender neck plate.
    ~ Fender strap buttons.
    ~ a '58 split coil Precision pickup handwound by The Creamery.
    ~ 1meg volume pot.
    ~ Tonestyler tone pot.

    Playability wise it's great, it is nice and heavy, just the way I like basses to be , sound wise it is a lot brighter /punchier than I expected, even when using D'Addario Chromes, But it still has that meaty low end presence. The pickups by The Creamery will be testament to that. .

    I've put a picture of the new arrival in her trolley as you may be able to see... She can certainly rumble lol
