My MIM P looks like a Nate Mendel signature...almost.

  1. Might as well finish the look, eh?

    The body is a midnight wine red. So it's not EXACTLY the same candy red colour of the Mendel P, but it's close enough and I like the midnight wine a lot more.

    Black pickguard.
    Rosewood fretboard neck.
    Badass Bass II waiting to be installed and grooved on the saddles.
    My brother is getting me a set of SPB-3 QPs for Christmas
    Have GHS Boomers installed (I Think that's what Mendel uses currently?)

    Only thing different is the headstock logo, but who really cares about that? The other thing is the neck width, but I doubt it'll make a difference to me anyways. I did try playing the Mendel P that my music store has had since...oh IDK....2012...and the neck does feel nice, but there's this weird faint stickiness to it that threw me off.

    The Mendel costs about $900. My MIM P plus upgrades cost me about half that price. I think I'm pretty darn happy. Say what you want about the BAII, those are collector's items now! XD
