    What else would Spock play but a Moderne.
    Better than that synth/harp he used previously.

  7. @roccobass Are the red lines denoting symetry in the basses? What is that second Fender? I am not familiar with that one -it is striking!

    I can’t be sure about the red lines, but your explanation sounds like that’s what it is. The second bass from top appears to be a Squier “Precision Bass”. However, to me it looks like a take off on the old Fender Telecaster bass.

  9. The left line seems to be where the E-string starts and the far right line is the last fret (#20). The center red line is 1/2 way inbetween the two and likey for comparison of pickup placement.

    I think the red lines are drawing out the differences for:
    End of the neck
    Pickup placement
    End of scale ( bridge location)

    Did I win?

    The line on the right is the location of the last fret.
    The line on the left is where the strings get on the bridge.

    The middle line is exactly halfway in between the other two (yes, I measured).

    I think it's interesting that all but one of the split-coils the midline is pretty much where the split is.

    I'm going to guess Leo didn't do that by accident.

  13. Interesting thing is if you draw a line connecting the nuts, there are a coupla' different scales.

  14. Hmmm, I think we all need to have a little chat :bookworm:
    That Squier's styled on Leo's original (1951-56) single coil four pole Precision which was replaced by the 57-styling we're all familiar with. This same early style was reissued from '68-'72 as a Tele bass (the single coil then dropped in favour of one huge humbucker from '72 on) ... now can someone fill me in on the J 2×P?

    Er, this is awkward ... need related bass meme :wideyed:

    Best I could find ...

  17. That's just down to how far the camera was away from the bass when the photos were taken.
