a JP prepares to cross the pond

  1. if by "cross the pond" you meant "get sent to FLOYDtheBARBER's house," that'd be really cool.
    gorgeous bass!

  8. France is NOT in the UK.
    :D
    Everybody knows that, like everybody knows that NY is a burg in the suburb of LA...:D
    Which is actually the capital of Mexico:rolleyes: :D

    Anyway, this bass looks really gorgeous. I'm sure it will not be the last one to cross the ocean(pacific:D ,another french joke, sorry...)

    Whoa!! The FBB 8 and now that?! I'm going to have to clear a whole day from my schedule to come check those out! I was just looking at it today on JP's site, wondering when it would be done. Looks great, Mark!
     
  13. I should get those individual saddle doo-dads for a replacement bridge for my sixer, it needs a new one, and perhaps a new imput jack too...

    Thanks a lot for the comments about my work guys.
    I'll be sending the bass to xush in a week or two, time for me to set it up correctly (the nut still needs some work), to pack it and go through the post office.

    I'm sure Xush will find some time to make us some kind of review when he gets the bass and of course some sound clips :D

    Peace, JP

  17. JP,
    Really looks great! What are YOUR impressions of the bass? Looking at your website, it's not your first fretless. What do you think -- as objectively as you can?

    As I said the bass still needs a good setup and the brand new strings are not my cup of tea for fretless but I really like it.
    B string is huge and the sound is really full, wide open, thanks to limba body I guess.
    The bass is very punchy (just as I like them).

    I love that bass. I think that the JP Pickup and E-pro preamp combo works really well and I don't see a bass with it I could't love. We'lle see how they work on Ari's bass and on the singlecut but...well..I'm pretty confident ;)

    Just wait until Xush gets the bass in his hands and he'll tell us what he thinks.

    Peace, JP
