    '69-
    Like an abandoned child when I found it-
    Bridge rusted. electronics/hardware shot, needed re-fretting, had "disco" style hooded machine heads,
    and was...SPRAY-PAINTED Black! (spray painted!)
    Refinished to natural alder, nice grain, neck sanded, lightly tung-oiled, fret job, headstock left "OG", new
    pickguard, new black hardware inc. BadAssII,
    Duncan Passive pups, Black Chrome Fender machine heads.
    Best neck ever, plays like a dream-slaps, thumps,
    walks, talks. Incredible 33-years & counting Mojo vibe. I LOVE this bass- sorry the picture sucks-
    But I hope y'all get "the picture"!
    :cool:

    I don't know much about this bass. It says "Dennis Meredith Handcrafted Instruments, copyright 1975" I use it as a backup to my MTD Kingston. I deftretted it last year on a whim, but the neck is so warped that I'm getting a new fretted neck for christmas. I just can't see myself needing a fretless for the type of music I play.

    Anyway, it has a decent vintage tone. There's some good flexibility between the humbucker and the P pickups. My next plans for it are to replace the pots and shield the cavity.

    If anybody out there knows anything about this thing or any others like it, let me know. I've done a web search but haven't found anything.

    Woo Woo on the harris bass, hey PM where did you get the pg from? Also I tried out that bass and loved it but eddie stopped me from buying it! Yours is AWESOME.:cool:
     
  13. My 1995 MIM P-Bass:
    - Arctic White
    - Duncan Quarter Pounder pickup
    - Completely shielded pickup, wiring channel, and control cavities
    - '62 P-Bass reissue aluminum shielding plate under the pickguard
    - '62 P-Bass reissue tortoise shell nitrocellulose pickguard
    - Switchcraft jack, CTS pots, ceramic disk cap, cloth vintage wiring
    - Fender reissue bridge and pickup covers
    - Fender American Standard straplock buttons

    I think the MIM P- & J-Basses are great project platforms. The necks and playability are a crapshoot. But if you get a good one, you can do a lot with it.
     
  14. And, for those J-Bass fanciers who wondered if she has a sister:

    My 1997 MIM J-Bass:
    - Arctic White
    - DiMarzio DP123 Model J pickups
    - Completely shielded pickup, wiring channel, and control cavities
    - '62 J-Bass reissue tortoise shell nitrocellulose pickguard
    - Switchcraft jack, CTS pots, ceramic disk cap, cloth vintage wiring
    - Fender reissue bridge and pickup covers
    - Fender American Standard straplock buttons

    Good MIM pieces allow the answer to "P-Bass or J-Bass?" to be, "BOTH!"

    Ronzo, what strings do you have on the P?
    Looks like Slowounds on the J.
     
  16. Absolutely right on the Slowounds on the J, Mike. I put those on when I dropped the Dimarzios in. I like them a lot. Nice punch. Since I installed them at the same time as the pickups, I'm not really sure where the punch really came from, though.

    Fender Original Bass nickelwounds on the P. But she's getting a set of TI Jazz Flats on her this week -- a birthday gift from my daughter. I have those on my fretless, and I like them a lot.
