Odd P-Bass?

You mean there are other basses? :D This is where those discussions go.

Odd P-Bass?

Postby reformedrummer » Mon Jun 06, 2016 9:20 pm

Has anyone seen a bass like this before? Frankenstein-bass or regular production? The soapbar humbucker looks like the one on the Deluxe P-Bass a few years back. The metal control panel resembles the old-fashioned P-Bass controls. The body and the neck look very much like Fender P-Bass. No pickguard, with control access panel on the back- not typical but examples like Aerodyne etc. The bridge is the only part that does not look like Fender. ImageImage

Looks like a Big Block Precision:

I hope it's ok to post that link Ken, they don't carry it anymore and I couldn't find it on Fender's site.

If you're looking at a used one, just to reference the price point, I think the street price on those was in the same ballpark as the MIM Deluxe series Precisions, as I believe it was a part of that line. I also don't think they were around for too long or sold too well. They made a Strat version as well.

I'm easy.

I've got WAY more important stuff to get my knickers in a knot over.

These are pretty cool basses. It's a nod to the Stingray for sure with the pickup right in the SR sweet spot and an active 2 band pre.
I have a similar Ibanez (RB920) that uses a double J pickup in the same spot, connected to a Parallel/series/split 3-way switch. I toy with the idea of adding a Duncan Blackouts 2 band concentric pre to it.
