    So I had some bass issues and have sold the Delano pickup in my other bass.

    This wasn’t a problem because I finished all the bass on the album I’m working on.

    Unfortunately, the artist wanted a different sound on one track, so I had to grab a bass off a friend.

    So he gave me this.
    271F470D-77CB-46BE-A0A4-699EE63E2D86.
    FC9FB69B-B9DB-40A2-8B5D-76C1A5C52319.
    850E3ECB-CFCA-4D09-ADE3-7F39744FC941.

    I love this thing.

    Jazz bass body.
    Telecaster bass neck (not just headstock, the nut it 1.6 inches and it has a square heel)
    P J setup and gold hardware

    The P pickup sounds just like it should.
    The Jazz pickup is uncharacteristically noise free.
    And despite a little volume drop the tone they produce together is amazingly thick and detailed.

    I need one.

    Anyone know what this bad boy is?
    There’s no model number or serial visible

  2. A friend of mine who owned a music store had a couple of Fernandes Strat copies and a couple of other Fernandes guitars in his shop back in the late 80s and they were amazing guitars. I loved playing them. I've never played one of their bases but I've heard they are great.

    This is the first Fernandes I’ve played.

    Before I probably wouldn’t have gone out of my way to try one but now I’ll play any that I see!
