    What is the only logical thing to do with a bass purchased for under $200? Fix it up with lots of expensive hardware, of course.

    Actually, I already had a lot of parts taking up space so it was really an excuse to buy myself a short scale bass, something that I have always wanted.

    Modifications include:

    Leo Quan Badass Bridge
    DiMarzio Model J and Model P pickups
    Custom wiring harness and pots
    Aluminum knobs

    The bridge and the pickups I have had for years. I purchased a new harness, pots and knobs from Best Bass Gear. As a side note the wiring harness is excellent, virtually noiseless and the 1/4 jack is solid. They custom build all kinds of configurations, just ask.

    As of now this has D'Addario Tape Wound Strings.

    Looks cool, unique sound, plays great.

    I posted some sound files on SoundCloud if you want to listen.


    Samples played with Fingers - Bass Line is Lynyrd Skynyrd "Gimme Three Steps"







    Samples played with Plectrum - Bass Line is ACCEPT "Sonofabitch"







    Slap Samples - I am not much of slap player but I included some simple stuff so you can get the idea


    Bass Line is something I made up.



    Bass Line is Van Halen "Push Comes to Shove"
