    Is that the one that's been on eBay for... forever? Just the thing for countering neck dive! :cautious:
     
  2. 1255849D-9F58-4F19-A97E-460E12786F2F. My Precision Lyte Deluxe. GC noted it as “worn”, which is probably why they were only asking $350. Pictures do not convey how much wood is gouged out next to the pickup. Kids, trim your fingernails!

    This is a gouged bass. And somewhere floating around here is the YouTube clip to show how it got that way.

    EDIT:

    Found it. I’ve posted this earlier, but this clip shows exactly how Guy Pratt created the where a mark on this bass.

    Yes, I'm aware of that fine BM '64 J - it's been featured in Tony Bacon's "The Bass Book" in both it's editions. GP now has a (matching) BM P-bass.

    Interesting how the black is the only layer (no undercoat) - and a substantial layer it is! Thanks for posting! :)

    Dude needs to keep up on his thunbnail trimmage! Lol. I assume once you break the finish in this scenario... you’d be chewing at the wood as fast as a beaver.

    Yes, he seems to be a fan of BM.

    battle scars :)

    Who knows how many basses he owned/owns but considering he played the BM J all those years, a familiar looking bass in his hands (his BM P) would go a long way to maintaining the 'flow'.

    I play in the same place, with a pick - resting my pinky stilt-like against the B pu and have similar wear there.

    Man, that thing almost looks like it got hot, or maybe left in the case for a decade or two!
