    I'm going to be buying an American P-Bass soon, and am thinking of getting the two tone sunburst with rosewood fretboard.

    I would like to see all of your P-Basses!

    This is the one I'm thinking of getting. That's a two tone sunburst correct?

    Thanks, Jimbo. Gets a lot of my playing time. I put a tort guard on it to match the J.

    Jock or anyone what sets a Duck Dunn apart from a regular P-bass? Ive always liked red p-basses!!
     
  7. Heh! That Duck Dunn signature up there is the EXACT one that I was going to buy before someone else did it. At least it is nice to know where it went :)

    Three-tone, actually. :) The orangeish part between the light brown and the dark brown is what makes it three-tone.

    Mine's in the shop getting mods done.. Will post pics ASAP...

    Bought it about 2 months ago. American STD. P-Bass for $400. Not the best shape. But at that price I couldn't resist. Getting pup replaced. Got a Warmoth neck, BE Maple with a TELE headstock. Hip-Shot extender on the E string. Got a separate pick-guard for it and Im mounting a Di Marzio Model 1 in it... Putting a blend knob for it and the P-pup should be great when it gets done.
     
  10. I second that.

    I see what you are saying. I thought it was a two tone, because the sunbursts I saw before the orange was much more apparent.

    I'm curious why the two tone is $100 more? I would think the three tone would be harder to do.

    Quick question about maple vs rosewood. Now I've never had maple fretboard, but I understand that it is supposed to have a brighter characteristic (Compared to Rosewood?)

    The other question I have is it really hard to keep a maple fretboard clean? How often do you usually need to clean the fretboard?

    Heres my home-brew Duck, with a tele style neck. 7.0 lbs.

  14. I don't have a recent pic of my Squier P, but it looks a lot like snyderz 79 P.

    Black body, black pickguard (not tortoise shell, but thinking about getting one), chrome bridge cover, chrome hardware. Mine is fretted and doesn't have a pickup cover. I have a thumbrest sitting around that I might throw on there.

    here's my '93 American P Deluxe (the onliest 4-string I own). It's got Fender Lace Sensors, the Kubicki active electronics, and that funky micro-tune bridge on it. The neck has been replaced with one of '98 vintage. The original looked like a Mobius strip.

    The Dunn is made like the US 57 reissues. It has an alder body, US vintage pup, and a B-neck unlike the C-neck on the US reissues. It´s a great crafted in japan bass.
