    curious:
    - to play as is?
    - to mod/"upgrade" --- a platform?
    - to 'have around'?
    - too cheap (and enough buzz on TB) to pass up?
    - all?
    - other?


    thanks.

    I bought one and swapped out the PU with a GuitarMadness Korean built (great quality)
    Alnico 5. Painted the headstock and pickguard. And named it Basso Electrico. The lightweight is a plus for me! I’ve given my other basses away and sold one. I love this bass! Mine needed a fret job. Sanded the neck and headstock with 1500. Very Reminiscent of my early basses.
    I am going to mod the blue one as well. A Fender Original pickup, headstock and pickguard paint. I was going to swap out the tuning machines on the first one but they are rock solid. “BE” is strung with Rotosound FunkMasters. The Blue will be strung with La Bella Tapewounds. With Copper Whites or White Nylon!:)

    It's the latest iteration of Hollywood, Dollywood, and Bollywood.

    All joking aside I believe it is just a color description for ‘sandy brown’

    It is not listed on the woodworkerssource.com site

    Guessing it’s simply basswood with a certain stain

    Is the bridge pickup in the 60s location?
    The bridge baseplate is longer than on a F, and that makes the pickup look closer. Best I could tell from photos is it's halfway between 60s and 70s. That would be ok too.

    Got The Pbass in Blue! Great neck cool color. Will need the usual setup on the Frets /action / intonation. After that a new pickup (Maybe)...was gonna paint Pickguard and the Headstock but the white guard looks pretty good with the blue?? Then some La Bella Tapes. Might have to swap out the Tuning Machines on this one. I love modding without breaking the bank. Especially since I have no bank to break!:) I also pulled the trigger on the Natural Jazz Bass. :hyper: 8654233A-95AE-44CC-9B3A-DBCF07E06B0E.

    I didn’t need anything done on my frets, action or intonation

    However my pups are very low output. I did lower and raise the pups to a height that gave me the loudest result but it’s still too low. I am thinking about Geezer Butler pups.

    Also the tuners are low ratio rather than high ratio gears so I think that is something else I’ll be replacing.

    I don’t believe I’ll be doing anything else though.

    I didn’t get the Jazz yet.
    As far as replacement jazz pups I would probably check out something from Seymour Duncan or Nordstrand
