    Guess I'm a product of my environment, but the pickup placement/selection seems backwards to me.

    Is that a Curbow? It's essentially a P/J bass. The Humbucker and the P are almost the same, but I bet you can coil switch the humbucker to a single coil and have a pure jazz as well.
     
  3. agreed.
    the headstock is tiny.
    and it would look better with humbucker on bridge and jazz on neck

    Yeah, its a Curbow. I don't doubt that it sounds great, but the visual is off IMO.

    I believe Warrior uses a similar pickup configuration in some of their basses.

    I don't have issues with the looks at all.


    I'd expect it would play and sound great.

    Pickups look correct to me. Get the humbucker mojo and a bit of extra treble near the pickup. I bet it sounds good.

    And if the headstock looks stange, it also probably contributes to fewer dead spots on the neck by being so small.

    but the neck pickup is a lot closer to the bridge.

    I bet that Curbow sounds awesome though.
