    got it yesterday - what an anwesome Bass - it's very very light but highly resonant - endless sustain - it's a Team Built Closet Classic 62' P in Shoreline Gold

    I've waited 11,5 month - due some problems with the german Fender CS distribution (and I would have had to wait even longer - some idiots seem to work in Düsseldorf.....) - the Bass itself needed 9 month - the support by Rob Schwarz from Fender was amazing !!!

    It's actually very hard to catch the colour and the colour of the tortoise....;)

    Very,very nice!
     
  3. It's beautiful (not a big fan of tort myself on SG, but hey, that's just me!). And indeed, it's a hard color to photograph, I've had some serious issues with getting mine on film... It seems that yours is less yellow than mine...

    Thanks.

    I think that I'll add an aged white guard to it as an option - but as a lefty you don't get any replacement elsewhere :spit: ;)

    I have made very good experiences with Pickguard Heaven ... maybe I'll see what I can find there the next time...

    :)
     
  5. Congratulations! It's beautiful, and I'm sure it was well worth the wait.

    I DO !!! The JB is my true lifetime Bass - it just has "THE SOUND" (at least to me ;)) - I have let it build with an Ash body and this combination of an Ash body with the 60ies spacing and the RW fretboard nails it so much...

    The PBass is GREAT too.... as a lefty it's not easy finding instruments that fit in every detail so I'm incredibly happy :hyper:

    The most funny thing now is : after having played only Jazz Bass and not any PBass the last 11 month my hand just falls off because of the wide 60ies spacing at the nut :D - I'll take it out to a long gig today and let's hope that I will still have a hand tomorrow :D

    That's a beautiful bass! For a lefty aged white guard... I ordered a lefty relic tort pickguard for my lefty '75 P-Bass from this shop:
    http://www.guitarslingerproducts.com/

    Alexander Beyrodt (the owner) was very helpful and the pickguard I got was perfect. Check it out. I noticed you're from Germany, so is this shop, too.

    THANKS guys !!!!

    And all I can say after playing two gigs with it and not being able to put it down at home - the Bass feels & sounds great !!!

    The Custom Shop did a great job (again !!!) !!! :cool::)

    My journey of finding instruments that fit from top too bottom to my playing is getting to an end (and as a lefty this journey is even harder)

    I'm happy !!! :hyper:
