  1. What happened to the neck pick up? Looks like it has cataract or something. Lots of rust too, but screws can be replaced.
     
  2. haha.

    Yeah, the bass is past its prime, but that adds character.

    Although the neck IS pretty nasty looking.

    Yeah, is that dirt or wear?
     
  4. I think its wear.

    Pretty much every vintage Telecaster I've seen (like pre-62) has a neck with that kind of wear.

    by the way, nice sig.

    Hey thanks man. What are the controls on the Sabre (fips and switches)? I think the seller could have cleaned it up a little better before posting it.
     
  6. ooh baby, i love worn in maple. modulusbassist, the owner probably played over the neck pickup, hence more sweat, hence rust.

    It so ugly its cool. The rust on the pups and the wear on the neck just give it that certain something.. what it is its hard tell.... ;)
     
  8. I would be all over that if I had the space and money for another bass.

    Well if you find the money you can just have it sent to my house. Its not that far of a drive to Fond du Lac from Madtown. Ive got plenty of room, an open stand for it and everything. :D
