    Once the railroad is done it's growth spurt, the amps may go back to where they were, to the right of the jazz.

    The Ibanez and it's amp are inside for the moment. 20191122_113711.jpg

    Great find!!

    I get tired of people whining, and @&$:-+**, and moaning about GC.
    I’ve never had a bad experience, and I have 3 stories about the times they’ve gone above & beyond...further than I had expected.

    ...a beautiful and unique Bass, used, off the wall at GC!
    I’ve got one, too! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Been downsizing for a year or so now. This is it. I genuinely love all the components of this setup.

    I do not know how a real 50's or 60's P bass sounds - but I have played lots of them from the 70's to the new 2000's +.

    And I have to say the mid 70's are the real deals for me. Nothing like this sound of P's.

    Really interesting bridge "saddles" - so is it that each treaded(?) post holds the string at the chosen height by tension alone? Do the posts have a wider string slot? And it looks like they are adjustable with a hex-wrench for height. Also, what's the black 'pad' above the first fret?

    This is 5 out of 7. Just my Squiers. I further have a Fender Mustang and a Yamaha BB Bass.

    I’m thinking the middle one comes with an interesting mod story. Details please.

    Well, it started as a Squier 51-p bass. I fell for her looks. Beautiful natural body, great neck. But I didn’t like - and don’t like - the sound of the single coil p pick up, especially in the position these are traditionally placed. So I figured that putting the pu of my then Ibanez ATK in the ‘sweet spot’ of this bass and keep it passive with just vt and a coil switch would probably make me very happy.
    Instead of filling up the original pu hole or design a pickguard for the bass I made a ‘ramp’. It covers the hole, it works as a thumbrest and it looks great imho.
    The bass now is among my preferred weapons of choice.

    I nabbed 2 of those ATK PuPs for my 5stringer (see profile pic)... I made many mistakes on my first attempt to make a bass body, but those PuPs were not one of them... ;) That thing sounds like no other bass I've ever owned...

    Not the neck... you'll see it's still labeled a MM S.U.B...

    I call it the peacemaker as it marries MM and ATK parts in unholy harmony! :D
