NPBD (New Parts Bass Day) - '51 P Bass

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by apolinario87, Feb 7, 2019.


  1. Hello, fellows!

    For some time I've been GASing for a '51 Precision style bass. This is my first assembled from parts. I finished putting it together last week. The body is a Squier bought from @DaveDeVille, neck is an Allparts licensed bought from @WillieB. Hardware and electronics were bought from different sellers on Ebay (nothing top-end brands).

    Looks fab! Shame the neck wasn't a square heel after going to the trouble of the headstock but it looks sweet as!
