has any one ever seen something like this??
i was just wondering if anyone had any pics.
yeah the P Elite. 2 P pups.
I like Lee Sklar's 2P basses:
I built myself a bass using G&L parts and a custom body that used similar pickup spacing and coil stagger to Lee's signature:
Here's a pic of a 1983 Fender Elite:
pretty much every bc rich....
or Warwick Buzzard...
i'd love to finally hear P pickup in that position. so much..
+1 Add me to that list!
Cool... how does that sound though? anyone have any sound clips?
This look very interesting pup wise, anyone agree? I feel very tempted at the moment to route a P in the bridge position now when i'm routing for a mudbucker in the middle position.
I did once play a Westfield bass which was owned by the owner of the local bass shop. He is a fretless player first and foremost and so had defretted and expoied this bass. What made me want to pick it up was the fact that it had two P pickups in it. Curious as to how it sounded I asked him if I could try it out, and he obliged!
The sound was a curious one, with both pickups on full it was full and fat sounding, and playing near the neck got a reallow hollow, almost uprighty type tone. With the bridge pickup soloed it barked a bit but not with the authority of a jazz bass, this was based rather more in the low midrange.
it was quite an odd bass, it was old (he said he had acquired and defretted it in the 80's) and battlescarred but it had a real character and vibe to it.
This setup yeilds some GREAT sounds. I tried it out on a BC Rich Mockingbird Heritage edition at GC. The P at the Bridge was like a Jazz at the bridge with the midrange growly sound, but a lot more bassy. I really really want to get a bass with 2 P pickups.
How much do those Fender Elites cost used? I'm sure they don't make that model anymore.
