Argh, I hate to bring up another one of these, but this bass has me at my wits end! So, my friend, co-worker, and band mate has a couple random oddball instruments in his house that we've tracked down the history of, but he has P-bass of unknown origin that has us scratching our heads. I will post the album, and you can peruse the pictures and below the link I will list all the little quirks I can think of that may not be visible in the pictures like weight/small details. http://s9.photobucket.com/albums/a55/Gedevo/P-bass/ Body: -The body is very heavy, we didn't have a scale to weigh it on, but its quite heavy. At least 10 pounds. -Also, the body looks as if it was cut in half and slapped together at some point, the cut runs through the whole body. -On the back right where the neck is bolted down there is a sticker, the model number is scratched all the way off, and the serial number is something along the lines of: 7x926001 (x being a random number) 75926001 70926001 -And I have no idea what kind of wood was used, but it feels VERY thick, and stable, and it has a nice wood grain in person. Bridge: -The bridge was replaced, there are slight indents in the wood around the new bridge that are only slightly visible in the picture. Looks like the old school wide fender bridge was sitting there. The bridge on there is just an older Badass Bridge. -There are also holes where the screws went for the old bridge. Neck: -The neck is very chunky, I really can't tell what woods were used, but the neck and the fretboard are two different types for sure. -The fretboard is glossed, but not very well, and the frets seem only decently dressed. -I am VERY hard pressed to believe this is the original neck, the wood seems way different, in looks, feel, and quality. And like the wood, just the overall build quality is botched on the neck. In addiction its also generic, no names or markings, a small sticker that says Reinforced adjustable neck, Taiwan. -The tuners have no apparent brand and are very rusted and dinged up. We can't figure this thing out, it also looks like someone took a nice P-body from somewhere, messed up or lost the neck, and slapped on some random cheapo neck, but the fact that the body is cut in half kind of nicks that idea. The goal is to get rid of the neck, replace it with a Geddy jazz, maple blocked neck (if it fits, we haven't done the measuring) and maybe making it a reverse P/J. But we want to know what we are cutting into before we do it, out of curiosity's sake. Anyhow, sorry this post is long, and any help is great, but it no one knows, then oh well, still gonna chop this thing to a great sound. OH and I can't attest to the sound of the bass yet, I was going to bring it by our practice space just so I could get a sound for the pups, but the action on this neck is rediculous, its raised almost an inch high near the base of the neck, where it connects to the body, and we didin't have time to dig into the guts of the bass to see if we could find the origins of the electronics. Thanks again!
