    Does anyone have a bass that they may have had for a long time or that they purposely reliced that is not a fender jazz? I always wondered if other basses aged to look like some of the old fenders that are seen so often. I think that basses that have been played until they were beat to s*** look gorgeous and have soul! Show your bass's mojo, and me some pics! :hyper: :hyper: :bassist: :D

  7. I'm going to relic my Cort headless P bass. It's worth next to nothing if I tried to sell it and it plays and sounds HUGE!!! The neck and fretboard is fantastic. Pics soon. I have to figure out what a well worn headless style bridge would look like!! :)

    Ordered it new in 78, has a lot of wear, yellowed quite a bit, a couple of bent tuners thanks to a drunken clumsy guitarist. Still plays fine with no real electronics problems after all these years. It's bullet proof!

    This might interest you...it's basically the liner notes from the "If this bass could only talk" album by Stanley Clarke but it's a good read.

    I have a 1989 Kubicki with a few dings and the white colour has aged beautifully...looks amazing!

    That bass just screams mojo. And the fretboard is starting to match the body!
