    192EC46B-5A84-4995-9F34-FE30F6CAF078.jpeg This week I finished piecing together a really cool “Frankenstein”, made of parts from the New Fender player series basses.
    Buttercream Precision body w/ tort, jazz PF neck, La Bella flatwounds, & stock electronics I find to work very well. Total build a little over 8 lbs.
    I’ll be using this in a Soul / jazz / funk band , actually right now it’s my only bass and I love it!

    That's a real beauty.
    My OCD kickjs in a bit at seeing the 'Jazz Bass' decal on a Precision, but other than that it looks totally perfect.:D

    That neck looks great. The whole looks is really cool. Just did the Jazz neck on P-Bass body parts bass thing myself. Can hardly put it down. Don't know why I didn't do something like this before. Hope you don't mind my sharing:

    Thanks man! I played a whole bunch of of basses at my local music stores, and just couldn’t get totally comfortable, so I decided to build my own idea.

    Your bass looks awesome as well, nicely done!
