    Some of you know how I like Fenderbird basses Well here is a new kind. Or perhaps I should call it a Thunder-Jag. It is a parts bass made with a Jaguar body, Mighty Mite neck, and Thunderbird pickups.

    I like it - it almost looks like the "other" T-birds, but with a Fender neck... I actually could see a Fenderbird build in my future - I've always thought they were kinda cool...

    Ya ... the Jag body is sorta like a non reverse Thunderbird, but smoother and no neck dive.

    I am enjoying the grunt of the t-bird pickups.
  10. Oh, I like this...may try it in the future!!

    It is a fun bass to play ... I run the neck volume full, the tone full and roll back the bridge volume ...

    I think I'd like to do a 51 style p-bass with 1 t-bird pickup, and one volume and one tone

    Very nice bass!
  17. Looking closer at the pics, is it the bridge p-up or the bridge that's tilted? The gap doesn't seem to be the same on both sides.
  18. i have to say....that is an absolutely beautiful bass

    if it sounds as good as it looks....i would say....WINNER

    Looks to be the p-up, which is ironic considering that route is the stock one.

    Either way, looks really awesome!
