Fender CS LOTTO Telecaster Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by topper, Apr 13, 2009.

  1. Anybody know how this bass (Fender Custom Shop LOTTO Telecaster Bass) is wired?

    I can find very little on this online. Looks like it's two volumes, two tones? And is the switch a basic series/parallel?

    :bag: Before you ask, no I'm not planning to spend $6000 on a bass.

    It's probably wired like a LP; I'd guess the switch is just a 3-way pickup selector... bass version of the Tele Deluxe, which was a Tele with LP wiring.

  8. So a 3-way pickup selector switch and then what are the four knobs? Is an LP two volumes two tones?
  9. You need to win the lotto to justify buying it.

    Not gonna lie... if I had that much disposable income, I'd probably buy it.

    Don't see why you couldn't build a comparable Warmoth version though. Someone take up the reigns on that and report back to us :)
  11. Wow. That's very nice! Not at $6K though :rollno:
  12. So, just to get us back on topic... No I'm not entertaining the idea of paying $6k for this (or any bass). Yes, I think building one out of parts is a fabulous idea and is in fact why I'm inquiring about the electronics configuration.

    If it is like a les paul, that would be two volumes and two tones with a 3-way pickup select switch.

    What's the point of a pickup select switch when you've got two volumes already? Is it just for speed?

    I think I'd rather have a series/parallel switch. That way if you needed it, you could throw that switch and get a little volume boost and a little more bottom end.
  13. It's just the way LPs (and generally any standard gibson) are wired.

    Let's see, Lakland made a business of copying Fenders. Go buy the Lakland then. What's stopping you, $$$?
  18. Fender can kiss my ***!I just don't like how they are doing us musicians.The majority of us are blue-collar "working musicians" grinding it out in the bars.It appears to me that they like kicking a man when he's down,with the economy and all.No thanks,if I want a bass like that,I'll go to Warmoth w/$6,000.00 and have one made in a different color for each day of the week.

  19. +1. This thing would sound HUGE. :bassist:
