  4. Sorry as in 'hate to hurt your feelings' !! Especially if you own some wierd color bass. Black is best color! Even sounds better!

    Yes, but that is the minor trick the playing is...

    He mentions it in one of the YT vids about having developed and practiced the tuck so he can switch smoothly from one style to the other. Neat stuff. Must learn.

    Yeah baby!
    Somehow it is just wrong to refer to that as a "Frankenstein parts bass" man! Please, never do that in the presence of your instrument. Call her ... Betsy ;-)

    I have a tort blank but it is more brownish than red (which is my preference) is there a way to make it more red? Paprika perhaps? :bag:

    I like that walnut. My first PBass was a 77 mocha like that one but modded with a J. Sold it to buy a 62, but man I wish I still had it.

    I cannot with good conscience go with burst and a tort, black or white pickguard, nor with black and maple or any of the typical mundane favorites.
    I want a P bass that looks as special as it sounds.
    Here's mine.
    This would be my other choice.

  14. Brown Sunburst-Pack.jpg I like this Brown Sunburst that I think you can only get on the Squiers in the Beginner Packs. They should put it on Fenders, too.

    This Antique Burst is cool. I think it only comes on Squiers, too.
