NBD - Frankenslab Precision

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by MADChuudoku, Mar 12, 2016.

  1. been waiting to get this one together for a while now, just picked it up after leaving with my "go to" luthier/tech man

    this was put together to be the ultimate touring workhorse, for gig after gig after gig.

    Slab Precision Bass body (quite light, parted out from someones bass who had created a fully faithful tribute to the old fender slab precisions, but then parted it out after acquiring an original, if i remember correctly) neck pocket had been widened for the previous neck, so has a bit of a gap, but its only cosmetic and i kind of like the janky look.

    original oldschool (i believe) fender precision pickguard with the metal plate underneath.

    Dimarzio DP122 model p pickups, mid heavy p bass pickups - the only type i play
    pickups are wired straight to volume (no tone control) and then to jack.

    Leo Quan Badass II bass bridge - i have these on all of my basses, this is the type with the pre slotted saddles.

    Limelight medium relic 75' style jazz bass neck, rosewood fret board with block inlays and fretboard binding

    reverse tuners - i don't think they would've been standard on this neck, but its something i much prefer.

  2. Not a fan of slab bodies but damn, I can't deny how beautiful that looks!

    Just a volume knob? Wow! You are a purist! Looks like something that fell off the tailgate of Duck Dunn's van. Absolutely love it!

    Play it well! :thumbsup:

  7. Thanks guys! I'm loving it, easiest bass to play I've ever encountered
  8. Way cool. Love the looks of it. Perfect warhorse look. If it were mine, would have put the cream color cover on the pickup. Just because I'm old enough to remember when that was it for DiMarzio.
