Simple, drop a Dark Star into it and be done!
That's different! I like the look. Does it sound as good as I think it does? Like the Lakland's with the Dark Star? Last question: Any sound clips of that beauty?
I've seen a lot of talk about those Darkstars lately. Care to comment on how they differ from the standard P tone?
Besides the bad ass look, the clarity and punch throughout the tonal spectrum, especially on the top end,where J's seem to have won over it's predecessor since the earliest Fender days, have been revolutionized, and it starts here by Mr. Hammon's ingenious design of a relic pup IMHO. I have only played this through my Ampeg 1965 B-15, but will test it through an SVT soon.
That looks awesome, I bet it sounds immaculate.
LOVE the Bass!
So tell me :
Where can I get a Dark Star?
Where Can I get a Fender with inlays like that?
haha, yes! Awesome!
Great Dark Star info here:
I did a similar trick with a Lawrence back in the mid 70s. Looks good. Went to the Hammond website and listened to the P-bass clips...very nice!
do they buzz?
are they shielded?
I don't think Harleyyy would allow that
My luthier used black graphite shielding paint in the pup and control cavities, as well as the back of the guard. Absolutely ZERO buzz even touching the strings or bridge alone.
Those pickups are just sick. I want a bass with one of those and an MM pickup for the most versatile bass of all time.
Sweet bass, Harleyyy. I remember seeing that back before it had the DS in it and it was already sexy. Now, the thing just looks incredible. Sounds incredible too, I'm sure.
That is damn cool.
it's so beautiful
as far as looks go, its a huge improvement to my eyes!
(i'm not a fan of p pickups)
