    Hey, is that a JP bass I see on their website with your name on it?
  8. With my name on it? Hmm...not that I know of. Unless they're secretly making one to send to me.

    Ordered a Duncan Antiquity and a vintage style bridge for the P-Bass, and am looking forward to it!

    That's really beautiful! Enjoy!

    How are you going to handle only four strings though? ;)
  10. Got the Duncan Antiquity and vintage-style bridge installed. Aww yeah--it's my Motown bass!

    Much nicer than before. Do you have flats on it?

    Any noticable sound difference with the different bridge/pick-up?

    Looks MUCH better with a black p/u.:ninja:
  13. Still can't get used to the "pre-deadness" of flats. I have a set of Rotosound nickel rounds on there.

    The white Dimarzio was really hot in terms of output, so the mids weren't really vintage-sounding. They were a little more snarly and harsh. Great for cutting through, but not really authentic for the period. The mids on the Antiquity are smoother and warmer. The pickup and the covers were pre-aged too, so it looks like it belongs. I was never really into the relic thing, but it makes sense on a bass this old.
