I'm in LOVE (Surf Green Content)

  1. I just picked this baby up from another TBer. Thanks Spencer!!

    I spent the day tweeking it in to my normal setup and I couldn't stop admiring it :oops: I've been looking for a MIJ Fender in Surf or Seafoam Green forever and finally found one. I have basses that come and go but this one is staying :D

    I've been kind of spoiled or have gotten used to the aftermarket P pickups like Dimarzio, Villex and Fralins. At first I thought the one in this bass was sort of blah........but a few adjustmets on my LMII and it's pumping out that good ol' P Bass tone!! :bassist: I'm in LOVE :hyper:

    Beautiful. :crying:
     
  10. Thanks!! I can't play it with the pup cover on :( I put it back on for the Photos. I've never been a big fan of tort and was considering vintage pearloid. Other than MAYBE changing the pickguard, it's going to remain as is.
     
  11. A pearloid guard would be sweet on that bass. You wanna sale that tort guard? If so, how much? You can pm me if you like. I'm workin' on another sunburst P and gonna need a tort guard. Just let me know. Sweet bass!

    NOOOO :crying:

    On that bass, I think it has to be tort. But its not my bass, so I guess I don't have a say :p

    To bad about not being able to play with the pickup cover on...those things are sweet on a P-bass. I think the Jazz covers are too over-the-top, but I like em on a P. Oh well!

    Looks like toothpaste, or my friend's Mark Hoppus signature model. The pickguard looks weird with it too.

    Sorry to be negative. I guess it's just not my thing. :meh:
    Maybe if it had a white pickguard... or a white shell/pearloid/whatever they call if pickguard! Then I'd dig it. :)
     
  18. My other, "never gonna be for sale" bass also has a tort pickguard :confused: Tort looks good on this bass and I can always change it back.
     
  19. i think it looks awesome with the tort as well and would leave it...

  20. Awesome! I love that color. Great score.
