    It's not ugly to me. What kind of pickup does it have?

    I think it's pretty nice looking.
  6. i didnt like the pup on this bass when i saw it, for me, if i get a p bass i want a p pup.. but then i read the site with options and you can get a split coil lace senser p pup.. so thumbs up.

    Four stringers only, eh? Oh well.
  8. I have that same Kent Armstrong pup on my wishbass. It's a very good pickup. It's a humbucker. If you set up the bass so that you can switch between parallel/series/single coil, I'd bet the bass would have a few more sound options that a typical p-bass.

    I LIKE IT!

    I think that P bass with soapbar is pretty nice..

    personally , i'd like to try it out ... think they'll send one for me to demo ?
    i'd change out that silver scratch plate ... pretty decent bass otherwise .

    A white pickguard, or a black one would look better,and who wants a bass that says Ugly on the headstock? Heard great things about Kent Armstong pickups though.
  15. A red tort pickguard would look awesome on this thing. And I'd like the headstock to say "Hideous" (It would be a good conversation item). Hey that gives me a great Idea for my Franken P-bass :D

    As far as the Kent Armstrong soapbar pickup. It's GREAT!
