    I did a custom extra special relic job on my pre CBS Fender P.

    I think it actually turned out really great:

    If anyone wants something similar done to their bass just throw me a PM, I'll do it cheap since it's more like a hobby for me, turning old vintage basses into something even more rare and special.

    Not in a million years would I have done that to a Pre CBS
    Fender Bass. But, you own it. You can burn it for kindling, if you wish.

    Must have been heavy to have needed a gastric band.

    Wow, how did you get the G string to have such high action and sit completely off the neck? Did you move the bridge down? If so, I am going to send my bass to you tomorrow. It's not pre-CBS, but it's CBS and already been modded so I'd like to be able to reclaim the collector's value I lost.
     
  11. Lol. That ain’t yours.

    "Pre CBS"??? I hope your post is in jest. IMHO, it looks awful, sorry.

    Needs a ramp between the neck & pu to hide some of those blemishes... otherwise- I like it! :cigar:
