    Do we have one? Do we need one? Maybe just a non-offset pickup P club?

    Always thought these basses were cool looking! Didnt they make a green or yellow paisley too? You could make the club for paisly P basses instead of just pink.
     
  4. The other one was blue. With flowers.

    That is beautiful. Drop dead gorgeous. Sadly I cannot belong to this club, yet.
    Anyone who gives you grief just does not have the balls to strap one on.

    I think paisley is an awesome design, i'm a HUGE fan of the pattern! I actually have never owned a Fender, but if I did it would have to be a Paisley. Keep rockin Paisley fans! :cool: :bassist:

    I gigged the blue flower one for about 4 years and sold it for some reason. Ended up buying this to replace it. It's a pretty aggressive growly tone for a pink bass. Always a fan of this style P though. I'm not one to mod much but I think this would benefit from a bridge that weighs more than 1/2 ounce. Just worry about the scars if I want to restore it to stock.

  13. Cool idea, I'll play.
    Here's mine.
    I've only owned it for a few months but it goes to every gig.
    It's got an Seymour Duncan (basslines) SCPB-3 pickup in it.
    I use it for ZZ and Zep stuff mostly.

    I'm in. These are really great basses.

    I also have the blue flower one as well; it is stock with flatwounds, while the paisley has a Seymour Duncan SCB3, a Baddass III with rounds. They sound very different, the blue one nails old school (especially with the tone rolled off with a pick and palm muting), but the paisley totally rocks. It is one of my favorite basses.

    moonshinegtrs #4! Keep 'em coming. Man I wish I never got rid of the Blue Flower bass. I've got half-wounds on mine. Just happened to get them from a rep. They lead to me putting DR Flats on my ASAT.

    Ok, I'm thinking to put a pickup cover, because I worry that I will harm the pickup. What's your opinion on that?

    Love the look but it gets in my way. I have been meaning to buy an ashtray for it though. I have a rusty one that just doesn't look right.

    Edit. Oh you mean just over the pickup? Not sure. I managed to pull the pickup apart on my blue flower bass because I was using it as my thumb rest for 100 or so gigs. I wouldn't worry about damaging it though.
     
  19. I used to have one. Sold it a few years ago when I was going through a divorce. Damn, I miss that bass.
