A cover, using both pickups here, tone at the middle.
Played along to the "bass-less" tracks
Far from perfect but I had fun
Another bass-less track + my bass
Continue documenting this bass
Here's my modded Bronco:
Sentell hand wound Big Sis pickup
CTS/Orange harness - Fender Knobs
Hipshot Vintage bridge
All Black pick guard
I like it!
Black pick guard is on my list!
I was curious about the Sentell. How does it sound? Do you have any sound clips?
Preparing for new mods!
Nicely looking dual rail humbuckers have arrived:
Still waiting for black pickguard blank and black pot knobs
I gotta say, I don't know how many years I spent away from the bass, but your playing is solid!
I bet some lollipop tuners would look great on your bass!
I'm not really into lollipop tuners, but will replace the stock ones for sure, these are crap. Possibly with regular gotoh-style heads though.
PJ pants and Bronco is how I work at home
It's great being able to grab an instrument any time you feel like doing it. Which is often!
Hey guys. Please fill me in: what’s NUBD stand for?
New (Used) Bass Day
Well well well, the end of the project is near, the only thing left is all the wiring
And it's done!!!
I'll maybe create a separate more detailed topic in the Luthier's corner...
Also I need to find it a model name, this isn't a Bronco anymore?
Bronco Deluxe? Duo-Bronco? Duosonic bass?
Also: no, I don't water our lawn, I let it live its natural life
Very cool project.
I've modded two Bronco's, one Black and one Torino.
I love the SS and the feel of the neck so much,
the red is my main player right now.
Yes, the neck is nice! Even if I would like a fatter neck, this one works for me too.
Little Bronco is doing its thing
(both pickups, volume and tone are both at 100%)
Those haf-rounds (goundwound) are designed to sound close to flats but still with some roundwound bite and definition. The tone will even out and the stickiness will wear off as they get played in.
If you do want something that sounds more roundwound-ish, you can try the GHS Balanced Nickels (pure nickel rounds on a round core). They do come in "short scale" 44-60-80-106, which is very nicely balanced across all four strings. The silk is green.
