Just finished this Warmoth project. Ptcoustic Bass: Build Thread Ever since I first saw Lindsay Buckingham playing a Rick Turner Model One and wondered what the heck it was, I have had a fascination with the idea of electric basses that have an acoustic vibe from an appearance standpoint. The Turner Model One (both the guitar and bass version) is a solid body electric but the round thing in the middle gives it a bit of an acoustic look. The piezo system gives it a bit of an acoustic sound. Inspired by instruments like the Turner Model One as well as the Carvin AC40 and a few others, I wanted to do my own take on that sort of a style. Here's a description and photos are below. Just finished it today so I don't have any sound samples yet. - Warmoth Custom T Bass body - double bound, hollow mahogany with spruce top - Warmoth roasted flame maple neck with 24 fret figured ziricote fretboard - Nordstrand Angled pole P bass pickup with the poles blacked out - No preamp & no piezo - passive P bass with unique look and sound bc of hollow body - Babicz Z-Series black bridge - Hipshot Ultralight tuners - Axetremecreations pickguard (fake soundhole and rosette) To help with balance, neck is slim taper profile with graphite rods and I asked for the heaviest piece of mahogany they could find. Turned out perfect at 8.6 pounds and perfect balance. Actually the body side is heavier so there's not even a hint of neck dive. I'm really excited about this one. Most of my past personal builds have been J bodies with four to six pickups, four band preamps and insane wiring. The woods were really nice, but in the end they were/are fancy jazz basses on steroids. This one is a studio/engineer friendly passive P bass with a unique look and slightly different sonic qualities. The tone from the semi hollow body vs solid body is audible but subtle. Basically a passive P bass that looks nothing like a P bass. A word about the name "Ptcoustic". In case it's not obvious, the P is the for the pickup, the T is for the body shape and the 'coustic relates to the look. I was calling it P-Coustic, but later thought of incorporating the T instead of a dash and like that so much better.
