Here's something you don't see every day. Take a Fender sandblasted P in Crimson Red, jettison the neck and electronics, add a new wenge/wenge Warmoth tele neck (looks like it's carved out of chocolate), chrome Schallers, copper foil shielding, a brand new EMG Geezer pup with harness, new pickguard, and a set of TI Jazz Flats... you get something that sounds eerily like an upright bass. (Even more than my Warwick Triumph EUB - wasn't expecting that.) Thick warm tone and articulate mids, with blooming mwah for days. My Ampeg PF-50T makes it sound like a living thing. Plays like butter. And surprisingly, it loves pedals! I plugged into a Chunk Brown Dog set to a crunchy synth fuzz, into an EBS Clarke Wah, and it made me lose all sense of time for about twenty minutes... I think. I love this thing. Worth the four-week wait for the neck. I may swap out the bent-metal bridge for a Fender HMV, and drop in some Strap-Loks, but otherwise it looks like I've created a monster!
