    Agreed.
     
  2. It’s been a while since I have logged in and did my part, been very busy with work, traveling and doing fund raisers event, so I have a lot of catching up to do.

    Let’s start from the top.

    I saw your Picts, and you where answered on Post #900

    I’m looking for you to provide detail information on the P-Bass you showing, details such as the year and model, is it original as it came from the manufacturer, or have you assembled that Bass from Parts, it’s your responsibility to provide such detail, not up to me to go fishing for them.
    I don't have a Crystal ball, nor can I guess.
    I will add,
    That most Bass players are proud of there gear, and will gladly tell us what they are presenting, we usually don't need to ask.

    Are you telling me that this Bass was assembled using a J neck from another Fender Bass ?
    If so, it’s a parts Bass.
    To be part of this Club, your P has to be original as it came from the manufacturer, meaning the original neck and body as it was original assembled and sold.

    I will not go back and change the rules and guidelines, but I will allow Big Blocks in.
    That being said, Big Blocks will be given a number since they are part of the Fender Precision line, but it must be an original Fender as it came from the manufacturer, no parts Bass allowed.

    Do you already have a number for this P, or are you looking for one ?

    On with the Fun part :hyper:

    I'm sorry about that.:meh: I'm a little new to this club thing.

    Serial shows my Big Block to be made between 2004 to 2005, and it is all original.
     
  4. No problem,

    Here is an idea on how I would have Posted that Big Block P-Bass.

    Sown on Post #922 is an all original Fender Big Block Precision Bass, since there are not a lot of these going around, let me tell you a bit about it.

    The Big Block Precision Bass brings elegance and power to any musical situation, and is made to be played with authority. The maple neck has a rosewood fingerboard adorned with white pearloid block inlays, 20 medium jumbo frets and a matching black headstock. The alder body features a slick Black finish, a double Jazz Bass humbucking pickup and chrome hardware. Great looking and huge sounding!

    Fender Big Block P Bass Features:
    • Scale length: 34"
    • Body: Alder
    • Neck: Maple
    • Pickups: Double Jazz Bass humbucking pickup
    • Pickup switching: Mini-toggle pickup coil selector switch
    • Controls: Volume, treble boost/cut, bass boost/cut
    • Width at nut: 1.625"
    • Fingerboard: Rosewood
    • Bridge: Fender four-saddle convertible bridge
    • Hardware: Chrome
    • No. of frets: 20 medium jumbo frets
    • Machine heads: Standard
    • Unique features: White Pearloid block position inlays, stacked treble and bass tone controls, side-mounted output jack

    Right about here is where you should pick it up, and tell us what made you buy that P-Bass, what your impression of that Bass is, and add what ever you feel relevant, boasting a tad is expected, so go for it ;)

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Throwing mine in the ring. 1983 Precision that I got new for my birthday. It was my main gigging bass for years until the early 2000s when GAS got the best of me. All original except for pickguard, new jack and wires from the pickups.

    bhhlki.

    I laid the pickguard in the sun for about a week, and has yellowed nicely.

    The sun method really worked?

    I wonder what a yellowed tort guard would look like.

    No joke. I bought a few aftermarket guards and experimented with the stock white guard while it was off. Parchment or mint green just didnt look right to my eyes. Just leave it in your yard or by the window where you get maximum exposure. It's subtle but every noticeable. Backside of the guard is still bluish white.

    Thanks. It sounds as good as it looks. I had a black guard on, but IMO, the B/W contrast looks much more balanced and classy.
