    I thought the thing with the bass neck was supposed to be the thing were looking at.

    Fail on my part.

    That's what it's really a picture of; it's an anti-ski jump jig.

    As cool as those are, I actually like basses with the tele guitar body.

    I think Eastwood makes them, not sure who else though.

  11. Okay, so it's not a tele - rather it is my old 56 P-Bass - but the body shape and scratchplate are the same - does it count?

  13. James Hart, great colours and I like the design of it. But, isn`t "fretless precision" an oxymoron?

    Excellent posts so far!
    Early Precision=sure. One of mine was;)

    GlennW=man, I looked for the thread on yer skijump setup for months and never could find it. Sned me a link?

    Tho Squire basses impress the heck outta me. One of the best deals going, my Tele bias aside.

    thanks... and ain't this a Tele Bass thread ;)

    Fender made Fretless Precisions throughout the 70s and do again now with the Tony Franklin sig :)

    oxymoron or not... it's got the exact tone I was after

    PM me when it's done, I'm curious to see what you think of it!
    Rod was great to work with throughout creating mine.
