    Nice. Congrats on the Pisces P. It's a nice looking bass and Douglas is supposed to be a step up from SX (I own two SXs and love'em) so this should be a nice bass for you.

    Will there be enough meat on the HS after the string tree, to get that "hump" of the Tele-style HS you're looking for? Be careful about making the HS too narrow...it might snap. Just a thought! Good luck and be sure to post pics.

    I've seen them, but never touched one.

    I like the look, and would be stoked to give one a try.
    I think the Tele headstock would be pretty cool on it.

    It's a lot like the Classic Vibe 50's P.
    (that one already has the Tele style headstock)
     
  4. I have to wait and see. I don't think I will be able to get it exactly like the above design but close enough.

    Here is a six string version that someone did over at the Agile Guitar Forum. I am hoping to doing something similar.

    Just as a heads up, I seem to remember some posters having issues with Buzzard's Bass, so you may want to research them a bit before ordering from them
     
  6. I have never ordered from them myself. Thanks for the heads up.

    96tbird PLEASE STAND BY

    Looks do-able to me. Very pretty bass nonetheless!
     
  9. Nice looking bass. I've considered them as a cost effective 51 p bass option.

    Good choice on both the mods and the modding platform. I had a Pisces modded with a Tele headstock and T-Bird p'ups..A great bass I wish I would have kept..

    I've not had any personal dealings with BuzzardBass but have read on these forums to stay away. YMMV. Just as a heads up, here are a couple of other parts places, just in case you don't know about them.

    http://www.bestbassgear.com/ (have ordered from them, no issues, but they can be pricey)
    http://guitarpartsresource.com/middle_bass.htm (ordered from them about 6x, no issues)

    Glad to see you've thought out the HS mod. It looks doable and I hope it works for you. The new HS SX/Brice basses are fugly (the HS is)...it's been discussed ad infinitum in the SX threads...I might still buy a new SX yet, just b/c of the positive experiences I've had w/the two I own. Good luck. Post pics. No pics, no bass!!!! ;)

    Good purchase! Anxious to see the woodworking project. Too bad they just don't sell it with a big slab for a headstock so it can be custom shaped by the buyer. I love my SX.
     
  14. @ pacojas. I can do that? LOL.

    @ mikeddd. Maybe I'll just avoid BuzzardBass and save myself possible grief.
    I have used guitar/bass parts resource a bunch of times and they are great. I
    will check out the other link you posted (thanks).

    I too wish Rondo would do something about the headstocks. I was lucky to get
    my hands on an SX Jazz bass when they still had the fender-y headstocks awhile
    back.

    I'm looking forward to messing with it. I recently modded a MIJ noname JB I
    got from a friend on another forum. I refinished the HS on it and learned a
    couple things. I want to try some other finish idea's I have read about on various
    forums. The reshape should be a challange. I haven't done any woodworking since
    HS. Looking forward to it. Thank god for cheap bass.

    Pretty nice looking bass. Be a pain to get it shipped to Ireland, though :p

    I’ve dealt with Brian at Buzzard Bass several times and have had him do some modifications. I found him to be quit amusing. Some might find him obnoxious but I think he does not translate well with email. Brian has come through for me every time I had dealt with him. Email him and tell him what you plan to do and he will give you some sugestions.
