My schecter P-bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by 74rickbass, Jun 27, 2004.


  1. I got some (bad) pictures of my schecter p-bass. It was made in 1982 and has a gold finish. It originally didnt have a pickguard, and had p/j pups. When my dad gave it to me last year, I had to make some changes! The neck had a warp in it... so I put a cheap hondo neck on it... I feel bad putting such a crappy neck on my baby, but maybe someday I'll get my 16 year old butt off the couch and get a job so I can get a good warmoth neck for her. I then added a tort guard on it, and cut it off and rounded it at the knobs. I then had to do one final change (besides good neck) I added a gibson EB-O pickup at the neck, so I now have 3 pickups, EB-O, Precision and jazz each with their own volume knob.

    Anyways, here they are, they are pretty bad.

    We both have Whafros! Right on :p... Also, I have a '74 Ric right next to me.. :p

    BASS PLAYING BROTHER!
     
  3. Haha! So true.

    I love my bass, I like it mainly cause its my first, But, I also love its sound. when all pickups are at equal volume, it almost sounds like a Rickenbacker. (I'd know, I have a rick, and I`ve been playing bass since I was 8, so I know tone) The only thing I dont like is its playablility. Because its got that crappy neck on it. When I someday get a warmoth neck, that bass is going to be awesome.

    YES!
     
  15. I'll post clips sometime tomorrow

    Did I also mention that the P and j pups also have series/parrallel switches?? haha so, you can get some weird combos.

    What does everybody think of the looks?

    I think it looks pretty sweet, especially with the EB-O pickup.
    *thumbs up*

    Is that a Schecter Custom Shop Bass or when Schecter was doing parts?
     
  18. I think custom shop, cause it was bought new in a store for over $1000.
