Just got my double P this past week and love it!!!
Absolutely does. That's pretty cool. I'm curious to hear how that sounds.
I keep coming back to this one every time I check this thread - love the honest wear and character. Nice looking wood too. This will definitely influence things when I inevitably break down and build a new double p one day.
The custom designed Seymour Duncan 51 stack pickup in the Dusty Hill tribute bass is a great sounding pickup. If the pickups in this are anything like it, that must sound incredible.
1987 Jackson fretless. Ordered it from Grover who couldn't have been more awesome to deal with and until about five years ago this was my main, even only bass.
Similar but different here. But does have the right pickup configuration. I have no affiliation with the sale.

^^^ I should have been more specific: I’m looking for an ESP PPJ ... that doesn’t cost $4500 I’m interested. But not that interested LOL
I completely understand your sentiment.
Some of those prices were a bit shocking.
A few listed in the vintage 50's and 60's Fender range of $9,000+.
EDIT: That was with the 5% discount as well.
I see a new Talkbass poll in the future: would you ever pay $4500 for an ESP bass?
I predict we’d all actually agree on no.
This quickly has become my favorite bass...to the point that I just bought another identical one. This is the same pickup that's in the Fender CS Dusty Hill. With the neck pickup, it sounds like the Dusty. The additional magic happens when also blending in the bridge pickup...can get more focused, even with a grindy edge to it. Love the neck profile too.
Yes, this is the same SD CS 51 Stack pickup that is in the CS Dusty Hill...x2. Love the tone. And quiet. Lots of versatility with the 2 pickup configuration.
Nobody has yet pointed you to club?
Dual P Pickup Club!
Ah... maybe that's so we have an excuse to post pics of our basses again. (Like we need an excuse.) So in that vein... a pair of 1981 Vantage neck-throughs.
The thing is...they retail much cheaper in Japan but there is a group of ebay seller that list them for US delivery with a big markup not even having them in inventory!
The original seller is here :
ESP／ORDER M-II TYPE BASS／中古／¥178000／状態：B+
178 000 yens that would be about 1680 USD
The PJP is here :
388 000 yens so about 3600 USD
Well, 3600 USD for an ESP still a lot though I'm pretty sure the quality is flawless
How about this one?
NBD - Fender PB-555 Precision Boxer
In a word … HUGE!
I am thinking of going the Double P route with this bass. I am weighing the options on whether to add a Reverse P or Std P configuration to the bridge pickup I plan on installing. What say the residents of this parish?
Fender Hoppus Sig isn't it? Nice bass!
IF it was up to me, I'd reverse the neck config and do a standard toward the bridge, emulating the double P setup on the Warwick Buzzard, but that's just me.
I’d leave that one as-is. Nice bass!
Nice! If you add another P pickup you’d probably have them in about the same position as my Vantage VP-710B. It sounds great to my ear.
