    Wow! That pcikgaurd looks great aswell!

    I too adore my player jazz. Now, with my new pups, it's perfection, and I couldn't be happier with it, but Even before I upgraded them, I still knew I had found an absolute gem of a bass. It's truly become my bass for life and I hope never to part with it. I mean, look at my avatar... isn't that just one sexy bass? I feel like a lucky man indeed!

    I highly recommend these basses to anyone. I'm happy to see the club is growing.

    Black moto and tort work well.

    Never seen buttercream with gold anodised but i think that would work nicely

    Not sure what model bass, it’s not a player series, but Buttercream and anodised gold... not bad!

    Something to think about :smug:

    Who did I buy my electronics ? You mean where ? Bought a loaded pg from a 1970’s bass, used the cap and jack, bought new CTS pots from amazon, and cloth wire too.

    Hi all. Would like to join the crew. I have my white Player modded with Babicz bridge, EMG Geezer Butler pickups, Zero rest and GHS pressurewounds. Sounds great through the Ampeg BA 201 at home and even better with a 15" cab live. 20190924_164516. 20190924_164537.

    I love the Buttercream Players and personally I would be tempted to try a mint pickguard. White does look good though. :thumbsup:

    If I had the choice again, I would’ve got a white player with maple.

    But I’ve got my black and maple one now. And I’m quite happy with it.
    I had a play of it, liked it and just went and bought it... I didn’t even stay around to check out the other colours in stock!

    The buttercream is really nice too. But white is classic for me. Same as black. It’s just works with everything.
     
  15. It's hard to go wrong with either! With a maple board, both just scream 'classic' to me

    I was torn between the Red and the White, but in the end it came down to feel, and the particular bass that I ended up with just felt a bit more "right" than the others, including some American standards

    I just had mine set up last week for the first time since purchase. A bit of neck change with spring arriving. Its sharp as a knife now. The action is low and easy. The medium-light GHS strings are a great match. Good tone but easy to work with.

    I have the perfect pickups now, all it needs is rolled edges and it officially becomes the “perfect bass” for me.

    Regardless, the player necks, whether jazz or precision, are the best fender necks I’ve played so far.

    I’m interested in trying a bass with the new roasted maple necks by fender. Wonder how they would feel
