    So instead of scouring the web for a P Bass with a jazz neck I thought I'd have one built, and she showed up today:)

    All Fender/Fender licensed parts. Light relic. 1.5" at the nut. Reverse tuners, vintage bridge. I was going for a 69ish Fender P look. Came with leveled frets and a spectacular setup. Low, buttery action.

    It's a very convincing relic, I like the light touch on the fretboard, it was exactly what I wanted.

    I have a set of EMG Geezers I might stick in there, but for now I'm just enjoying it. The pickup covers and maybe the ashtray will come off, but I kept them on for the photo shoot. Enjoy!
