    Not sure. Something about him screams closet.

  4. You can get them from the G & L online store. Just make sure to get the correct ones depending on the age of your bass.

    It was originally a stock Squier I got at a pawn shop in about 2005. I refinished the neck, removed some wood from the body, added passive SD soapbars, gave it Hipshot hardware, new electronics, and rattle canned it. It's got a massive neck with very nice action. A true frankenbeast.

    After a couple of false starts, I think I have a set of basses that I deeply enjoy

    Some of the harem …

    Ironically, from this selected group of basses, the oddball one would be the Precision bass ... I don't need to tell anyone on this forum how much the other basses cost in this picture, I am sure most, if not all of you have a pretty good idea.

    If I had to pick 1 bass out of this entire group as the "Lifetime" bass, it would be the P bass ... The absolute definition of a true "Frankenbass" .... a '62 MIJ re-issue body, a Warmoth tele neck, Seymour Duncan 1/4 lb'er pups ... Quite possibly the most enjoyable playing, best sounding bass I have ever owned. I bought her from a Reverb seller one evening a few years back for $650 and since that time, she's become "Priceless" to me and my #1 go to.

    Go figure :)

    There's a stage I jam on sometimes that is pretty small. One of these might see it's way to my stable for that purpose

    That headless is beautiful! (well, they all look great!)

    Can you share some details on it?
     
  20. Thanks! It's a Roscoe, and actually pretty basic as they go: alder body, maple neck, pau ferro board. The top is cocobolo - this is a Standard model so it's just veneer thickness, but yeah, THAT top was in the Standard pile! Stock Bartolini pickups/preamp. It balances perfectly and feels almost like a medium-scale bass, even at 35" and 24 frets. Sounds huge. I should play it more, but the Jazz is #1 right now.
