    Nice! I’ve been wanting a single-coil P for a while now. Something that I can string up with super thumpy flats and play with a pick.

    Congrats, as everyone so far has observed, those are very nice basses. I am (or was?) a J-Bass guy too but I can't seem to put the CV50s down. I like the color scheme you have with the black PG best. I replaced the PG on mine with a WBW (parchment) and I think it looks better than the stock white one. Great little basses.

    They are beautiful, aren't they? I've got one myself. Shortly after acquiring it, I purchased the repop vintage bridge and pickup covers so I could make it look like Leo's first P bass. Years later, I still haven't had the heart to drill through that gorgeous grain to install them! I have mocked them up with double-sticky tape, and it looks great to me. I just can't seem to get up the nerve to make the holes. I may need professional help if this continues unabated!

  6. That looks NOS but must be pre owned with the Flats in place. These are getting harder to find in this color but love the white blonde on these too. Nice score . HSC too.

    Been seriously thinking of one of these but decided to get the black Warmoth ‘56 build recently listed here. Can’t wait to receive it. Love p basses in general and always wanted a 51-56 style.

    I went with the SCPB2 because The SCPB3 is basically the single coil version of the Quarter Pounder pick up which I personally didn't care for sound wise, (too much mids). The SCPB2 has a very nice balanced sound and is a vast improvement over the stock pickup on the Squier. I'm also using Fender 9050L flats and the combination sounds great to me.

    My impulse purchase today - though I have been looking for one for awhile. Going to bring it to my NYE show tomorrow and see how it goes
