Hi I'm new and here's my bass :)

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by TakeAPebble, Dec 21, 2012.

  1. Hi all :)

    New to these parts, and new to playing bass playing, but Hi, how are we all?

    Here's my bass :)


    Uploaded with ImageShack.us

    I designed it, a friend of mine's husband built it :) it is made from African Mahogany, has my initials in pearl in the headstock, and has possibly Fender Jazz pickups, cost me £120 to have built :)

  2. Hey Simon. Welcome. Neat looking bass you have. The pickups appear to be Precision pickups, not Jazz.

    Hi there and welcome. Cool looking bass but it doesn't look very comfortable to play.
  5. Thanks for letting me know, a friend of mine said he thought they were Jazz :) so y'know? What bass do you have? :D

    Cool bass! Looks like something Entwistle would have dreamed up.

  7. It is mind, designed to be played vertically and horizontally :)

  8. Thanks Two fingers :)

    Awesome looking and it has your initials in the headstock, uber cool.
    You can certainly say that you own a unique bass, one of a kind.
    Put removable attachments for four wooden legs on the backside and
    it can double as a coffee table between gigs

    Welcome to TB. Those look like vintage 70s Dimarzio P-bass pickups in your bass. Very cool.
