Hi

 

I wanna show my new P-bass, and want your opinion about it.

The bridge is Gotoh, like Bad AssII.

Strings are Elixir roundwound 105-45

Pickup - Seymour SPB-3 Quarter Pound

Body - Basswood

Neck - Maple

 

Well, soon i´ll change the strings to Rotosound flatwounds, because e wanna more punch. :)

 

Opinions please, and sorry for the bad english.

Looks very nice! Is that a Paul Harris Signature? I played one of those at a music store last year, and I would have bought it in a heartbeat if I could have spared the cash. Maple fretboard, Quarter Pounder pickups, solid bridge...mmm....tasty. I bet it'll dish out some thunder with some rotosound flats on it. I think Paul Harris used strings like that himself.

 

I think I might put that picture on my desktop, if you don't mind!

 

Regards!

I have a set of Roto Sound flats on my 59 P Bass they are probably 20 years old and still sound very nice...

Only reason he has the same strings on his '59 is because he spends all his $$$ on every available Sadowsky/Lakland and vintage bass in the NorthEast!!

 

( :D Dano!!)

Well, i recorded something, so you can hear it !

 

The first is the 7 track of the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album from Iron Maiden

The second is something of Metallica Black Album

And the last is Wrathchild from Iron Maiden too.

The recording is not that good, but its ok.

I recommend you to hear it in a headphone and turn the EQ of winamp off.

Nice bass! Looks like a Steve Harris signature model. I would love to have one of those if they made them lefty!

 

Congrats!

That truly is one sweet looking bass. I own two jazz basses, one in black and one sunburst, that I want to do some work on. I will probably leave the sunburst alone, but I want to put a diamond plate pickguard on the black one, drop a new set of pups in it, fit it with a Badass II bridge, and replace the black plastic knobs with the chrome p-bass knobs. I also might see if I can get some kind of metallic clearcoat put over the black finish to give it some sparkle. Whenever it's done I will post pics. I love Fender basses!!! And you certainly own one very nice looking one. Do you sleep with it???

HEHE nice

 

Well, it´s not a original Fender, it´s made by my luthier. It´s a copy of the Steve Harris his Blue Sparkle Fender Precision.

 

I can say that it´s a whole custom bass.
