    That looks familiar.I d think it's a Fender but I think the maker may be a TB member.

    Hopefully they will be along soon to let you know.

    Post it to this thread and you should find some info.

    It is a beauty my friend, never seen a bass like it. Stupid question but gotta ask, don't suppose your interested in selling or could point me in the direction of where I could get one? I found a similar fender that's a Japanese exclusive but not relic
    Thanks for your reply everyone

    Thanks for the kind words! Certainly don't mind the question if you don't mind the answer.:smug: I've got too much time & sweat equity with these builds. Plus, my dad custom made the bridges and control plates. These will be with me till the end.

    There are a few builders doing similar concepts. One in Memphis and the other in Japan [as you mentioned]. For me, most of the fun were the builds themselves. Of course, enjoying the results ain't bad either.:thumbsup:

    Nice! I also did a build using custom ordered Warmoth parts. Based off a ‘72 Tele P-Bass, got a Nordstrand NP4a pickup in it.

    Definitely don't blame you it's definitely a keeper
    Do you have any videos of you playing it? Would love to hear it
    And thank you for sending the specs, going to look at getting a build done and will be taking great inspiration from yours

    No videos but here's a song, Who You Are, from our latest album Watertown.

    Good luck with the build, it will be worth the effort.
