My "new" toy! ( pics with the whole familly )

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by JazzMarius, Apr 20, 2009.

  1. so, after gas-ing for a 5 string bass i finallly have one.i mean, i had a Kohler B5 NT ( spanish copy brand ) in natural finish but it had like 16,5 mm string spacing and for my huge hands that was a PITA. so i trade it ( perfect trade for me :D ) for this one

    it is a Tobaco Sunburst Squier Precision Special 5 string bass. 2 jazz bass pickups, precision body, 19 mm string spacing, 2" wide nut, a joy what can i say. so i thought about moding it hard.

    first i shielded everything with copper foil ( man, i had an ungly cut just on my right index tip; so hard to play now...:bawl: ) and got some fender vintage jazz harness. that stuff is top quality. then i put some SADOWSKY Hum Canceling pickups ( boy, now that is "bad" ) .

    now, i am waiting for 4+1 Hipshot HB7 tuners and a set of Fodera Diamond Series SS.

    this bass is a joy to play! after a couple of hours of playing i felt weird when i got back to my Bongo ! ( different string spacing, thin neck ).it has some neck dive, but not to much.

    i'll post some pics when i'll have the tuners and the strings instaled.oh, and some knobs ( it is knobless now ).

    this bass is top quality!! is the best thing for the price i saw! ( around 200 $ for me in this trade.... )

    so if u have any questions untill then hit me.

    I'm a big fan of Kohler. They made the faucets in both my kitchen and my bathroom.

    That is a beautiful Squire! Hot rodded a bit though :hyper:

    I had a crafted in Japan Squire Stratocaster that was absolutely AMAZING... I was stupid enough to let the Squire logo get to me and I sold it. I wish I still had that guitar. The CIJ Squires were better than the MIA Fenders during that era!

    Whats the build quality like on those? I've tried some squier 5 string's in the store and didn't like them. They were Affinity series MII.
  13. Nice bass, but I really like the Peavey.

    Probably can't get much more bang for the buck than a Squier with Sadowsky pickups. Killer.

    The Peavey is beautiful, and that Bongo is umm... a great example of a bongo :)

    Nice collection!
  15. Yeah,i know what u mean. I was like that untill i saw here some hotroded squiers and read about what quality they have and i said,"what do i have to loose?"
    I don't think that way anymore!i don't care to much for the logo now,the quality is what counts!
  16. This one is MII too, but i am impressed about the built quality. Not even a SINGLE imperfection! Smooth finish, perfect painting!
    I even consider buying a Squier P!
    It's definatly the best bass i ever played, for this price!
    Maybe because it wasn't such a mass produced bass it has more quality than the Afinity series ( now, i see those even in a bakery :p ).

    I love it!
    Oh, and the neck is very well crafted! That is the thing i love most about this bass!
  17. With God's help, it will be gone by the end of the week.
  18. Thanks!
    Glad u guys like my little familly.
  19. just got 4 of the tuners! installed them and to get soon the lefty one too. instaled the strings also and it playes and sounds better every day !!!
  20. how o you like those PU's?
