Many, and I hope many more.
Mike, how are you liking your early 70's P?
Love it. John has done two of these for me (a tobacco burst with grey-bottom pups and the firemist with Duncans) and the necks are what make them wonderful. He re-contoured them both and I do not know if it is a magic formula or he is a human CAD/CAM machine! The Firemist is my favorite for sure though simply because the color is so sublime. I do need to replace the tone pot as it goes from 0 to 11 in the first couple degrees. I supplied the harness so this is all on me.
If I get another one, it will either be Burgundy Mist or Shoreline Gold.....I think!
SO many great Fender 60's custom colors, it's hard to choose.
Here are two more shots. This thing sounds amazing!
Is that a rebuild or a bass you ordered from John?
Oooo, I just noticed those tuners! That bass is even cooler than I thought!
It's a build that I just purchased secondhand here on TB.
Cool. I am sure you will love it!
She's light too. I'll have to weigh it later but I can tell by feeling it in comparison to my 62 RI.
It's the spitting image of the 66 Jazz on page 45 in The Fender Bass An Illustrated History.
BTW, anyone looking to pick up a John Kallas 69 Jazz reproduction?
I'm a big fan of John's basses so I figured I better join the club. Here are some photos of my faded LPB 66 reissue Kallas jazz bass!
It is by far the best sounding and playing jazz bass I have ever owned.....
Read my testimonial on his web site!
Very nice. I guess I'll take another opportunity to post mine.
Very similar to mine except you have the oval tuners.
Are your tuners stock to your bass?
Yes, all the hardware (other than the covers) are aged nickel rather than chrome. I love the vintage look.
Cool! She's a great looking bass. What pickups did you get?
If I recall correctly John used vintage Dunlop's.
they're actually Duncan vintage JB's.
Yeah, that's what I meant, sorry John!
