    I did a search and this hasn't been done in at least 3 months, and I'm tired of clicking on disabled links.

    Trying to get ideas for configuration on one I'm building.

    Show us your P-bass!

    :cool:

    How do you get the link to show up as an img like that? I tried using the 'insert image' thing, but it just showed up as a regular link.

    It's not even a sound thing for me. Why can't people make more basses with necks for the burly handed man? They have big and tall shops, they have triple-reenforced steel toilets for the morbidly obese... why can't they make more basses with a nut width of 1.62 or greater?

    Is it really that much to ask? Almost EVERY high end 4 banger is a jazz neck, and I can't play them. Besides Fender, only Spector and G&L seem to know what I'm talkin' about (custom luthiers like Roscoe, who makes a 1.6" nut on his 4s, don't count. Since they're custom and all). If there are any other makers of quality basses with 1.62"(42mm)+ necks out there, lemme know.

    Here's my P-Style bass that I made from scratch. Flamed mahogany cap over chambered alder body, Honduras rosewood fingerboard, Aero pickup with passive treble roll-off circuit. I find I can get it to sound like a Jazz if I play close to the bridge and the inimitable P sound over the pickup.
