    Do you mean the MM sweet spot? It looks like they put the PU where a P PU would usually be. Sweet bass.
     
  6. I think he meant the P-bass Sweet Spot

    Hmm, guess I was wrong when I thought the MM PU positon was usually referred to as the "sweet spot".
     
  8. Well theres the MM sweet spot AND The P BAss Sweet Spot

    Yeah, it looks fine and everything, but did Roger forge the metal used in the tuners? Did he plant the seed for the tree that was used for the body wood? Did he mix the stain?

    Interesting. I wonder where the inspiration is spawned for these two basses' creators. I'm sure some of you have seen it, here's the ebay Fender "California".

    SEXY!!!!!

    too bad it doesn´t have the "tele" headstock. That is an important part of the tele look. IMO.

    I'm with you Caracas, but the mandatory option with the "Telecaster Headstock" is the "Telecaster Headstock Lawsuit." I suspect that's an option that doesn't particularly interest Roger.
