    Thought I share my latest creations with the world...

    I wanted a Precision '55 and couldn't afford neither a CS nor the real deal so I built one. Two friends from the Swedish forum Prata Bas .se - Sveriges basforum, elbasforum och kontrabasforum, Marcbass and Olja, gave me a hand finishing and relicing the body.

    The other one I built for the Swedish bass player Rockis Ivarsson. We've been sharing ideas for almost three years and it finally came together this summer. He wanted it to feel like a Precision, look like a scrollhead and sound like a Thunderbird. The pickups are made by another friend from the same forum, Evilbiker.

  12. My latest build.



    My personal Leo Fender tribute, loosely based on his Jazz Bass design.
    Lefty fanned 5 string, 32 to 36 inch scale, Delano pickups, EMG electronics, various brands of other hardware, and lots of elbow grease.
  13. The family.

    +1, that's awesome. Did you do a build-thread, blablas?
  16. No, I only took a few pictures during the building and what I've got is not detailed enough for a build thread, it started out as quick and dirty project to see if liked a fanned fret board.

    What's the verdict so far? Is a 4" fan comfortable?
  18. It's not uncomfortable, needs getting used to, but the string tension feels good and the B sounds terrific compared to a 34 and a 35 inch scale B.
