    Sure there is - there's also EBMM, 'cause Leo's thumbprint is still visible there, too... I suppose we have to count G&L also, but they just don't do it for me like the 1st two...

    Play the snot out of it!
     
  10. What model is this? A Classic 70s in Oly White? Is that an American bridge, or just the typical bent plate?
     
  11. Combine all 3! Take the bridge & tone control versatility of the G&L L-2000, mixed with the body/pickup of a 'ray, and the bound/blocked neck of the Fender. ^_^

    I want one of those so bad! I think that's the coolest looking Precision available.

    Fantastic choice my man, I have the same bass. I bought the bass thinking the bridge would need to be swapped out, but after owning it for a while I decided to switch out the pickups for Fender CS 62 pickup (the factory pickup used on American standards). Short of a Custom Shop P or the 63 RI, I believe with the 62 pickups it is the best Fender. Enjoy!

    Without going to that excellent nut width list and relying on memory I am fairly positive the nut size is 1.62. Feels fantastic!
     
  16. Nope. 1.625"

    From what I remember the neck thickness was less than a typical p bass. Makes for a pretty fast and easy playing bass.

    Thanks guys...honestly I love my ESP's...

    But.....visually and aesthetically nobody makes what i want out of the box..and.....going custom from scratch is far too expensive for me...lol

    The neck on this bass is going to a natural body....and this one is getting a new neck, new pick guard, new pups, new electronics, and new knobs, and a gotoh bridge..lol

    And I bet you dollars to doughnuts Malak the mad knows what i have planned visually.....lol

    Wait…wait…I'm having a vision. Yes…yeeeeeeessssss…I can see it now. It's something…something Whiter-Than-White! Something incredibly "Vegas"!! Could it perhaps be something like this…

    …only more of the Precision persuasion? ;)
