    Hey all wanted to share my new completed bass build/assy...
    New everything:
    • Olympic white P body
    • Fender P bass maple neck
    • MIM/Highway one tuners
    • Tort guard
    • Fender Original 62 P/U's
    • 250k CTS pots
    • .047 Orange Drop Cap

    This bass was a real treat to put together and I enjoyed every minute of it, it is just an incredible player! Absolutely loving the flats!

    Hey B-Mac I believe it to be a new 2020 CV p bass body, the 250k pots barely fit in the route so my best guess is it's from a CV 70's new tear down.

    It’s a beaut, Clark. Enjoy it in good health! :thumbsup:

  10. Oh what. From where? Every place I’ve found was like $350 CAD for a body. Even if the CAD is sucky, there’s no way it’d be double USD at some shop

    Huh seems a bit pricey to me. Allen Eden finished bodies are around $120 on fleabay all day and even MIM $249 TB bodies, right now there are listings for 2020 Fender Player loaded bodies for $349 with free ship, so check fleabay. This body is from Franklin Works in Tennessee.

    These kinds of builds seem to be a great way to build Fender-style axes: Prefinished body, Fender neck, easy enough to get hardware and electronics from many sources, and you end up spending less than a retail Fender or a Warmoth, etc., build.

    Good on you !

    Beauty! Is that tortoiseshell guard as dark as it looks? If so, that seems like an especially good way to go here.

    Thank for that. For sure J, a little patience, squirrel away some parts (when the great deals show up) and in due time... I think you mentioned that in my NBD for the fleabay score it was a loaded walnut P.

    Yea it's definetly on the darker side I almost went with a black but it was too close to my Peavey Fury so I went with tort didn't get to pick it but I know it came from a 2020 60's or 70's CV. Thanks :thumbsup:
