    I saw a bass like this being played by the bassist for the group Anberlin. This is my Photoshopped version, but it's very simular. It looked like a J-style body with PJ pickups. Any clues?
     
  2. Looks like a butchered something. I dunno, never seen anything Fenderish with that kind of upper horn.

    Looks like a butchered Jazz to me.

    *slaps head*

    It's supposed to look like a Jazz and as I said, the real version is different (for the better).

    Very close, but this had the Jazz offset body.

  11. I bet they have a "J" type one, like that one looks kinda like a "P" type body.

    This bass was possibly ID'd in this thread.

    Apparently a Fender custom shop that says Taylor on the headstock? Or possibly a parts bass. One of the posts purports to a PM sent by the guy who plays it for Anberlin.

    Have you noticed the bent control plate? I thought that that was something Lakland designed for their DJ bass, but it seems that they got the idea somewhere.
     
  17. Almost looks like the headstock says "Taylor" in some sort of script font.

    Even when threads have less than 20 posts people don't read the entire thing. GRRRR
