    Have you ever seen or played a bass like this?!?


  2. looks like a custom job. ive seen a couple nice custom p basses, one with dual active soapbars, almost exactly like this, beside the pups (im not sure what those are) and i think the one i saw had a dual band tone circuit on it. ive also seen p's routed out for big MM 'buckers, and even a triple split coil p-bass. i know bc rich makes dual split-coil pup basses, but this sucker had three of em! course, none of em were ever for sale:mad:. hehe:D

    The pickups look like those fitted to the Telecaster bass and to prove my theory

    I've never ever seen that bass before. it's gotta have a fat sound. I wonder what that bridge humbucker would sound like if soloed, ala Jaco?

  6. Like I said on the other thred, that P-bass isn't going to sound like a "P-Bass" It might sound good but it will not sound like a classic Fender P-bass. Someone please buy it so we could hear what it sounds like. um kay!

    It's interesting, but I'd leave it alone.

    Sorta reminds me of Jeff Berlin's old highly-customized P-bass, except his had Bart soapbars (in the same location), and it didn't come from Fender that way!

    After looking at this bass several times now, I agree it's not going to sound at all like a traditional Fender P.

    I envision a fatter tone, slightly more bottom, less highs, and less mids than a stock P.

    The might be a great bass for a blues gig!

    Yeah, I posted it...pretty sure it's gone by now, as that site hasn't been updated in over a month. Pups are not the same as those on the Tele Bass (mudbuckers), who knows what is hiding under those metal covers - maybe even two J pups side by side?
