    got a cheap gear for music bass guitar second hand for £20 today, so i thought for that money i could afford to reshape the body a bit and give it a bit of a paint job.

    i tried to base the shape (loosley) on that sorta rickenbacker bass shape, and decided to keep the wood finnish and just rub in some walnut oil.

    it actually sounds pretty nice for a begginer bass! truss rod needs a tweak, and maybe some new pickups needed, well see about that (note the rust on the pots!)

  2. Well it's original
  3. This, of course, is only my opinion, but that thing is butt-ugly.
  4. hehe i feel the same way about the p-bass shape, hence the bass destruction :D

    Have you ever seen a Ric?
  6. Take off the pickguard

    Reshape the body some more to make it more Rick-like

    Make the body color more uniform

    Reshape the pickguard to be more Rick-like

    Reattach the pickguard
  7. Body needs a lot of work to look more rickish. Need more cresting wave.
  8. im not so much trying to make it look like a ric, more shaped it with that in mind. it does need more sanding, ive left that till im out of that 'want it finnished mood' im in now, so i can do it with some more finesse.
