    Old pic - it's had a Geezer Butler EMG fitted since this was taken. Beautiful bass - alder body & the neck is canary, which is somewhere between maple & wenge in terms of feel. If you're ever near Tyneside you're welcome to come & have a try... 😀


    Uau, that's actually pretty close to what I am looking for, and it's the right color!

    Glorious, that is all, I've always felt that P/Js lack a little something, P/Ps are clearly where it's at. And wow, Fender Custom Shop build quality in every respect. 



    Very nice. Almost bought it a few months back, but Fernandes is the last name of my (ex) best friend, that betrayed me 2 years ago. I can't have a bass with his name on it, I would throw it out the window.

    Don't know why I've refrained from commenting on this up to now - but bloody hell! :x

    That ticks every P - shaped box I have: MIJ, through-neck, maple board, double P - I could go on...

    Only ever seen this before in old catalogues, and not with a maple board:


    So I'm not sure whether yours is the FPM-80 or the BO-60. Apart from the price & finish, I'm unsure what the dfference is. Could be that yours is another model altogether and just not in any of the available catalogues. These only appear in the 1980 & '81 catalogues and will have been Japanese market models. Doubt if Fernades would have officially exported this sort of bass post "lawsuit era"!

    I don't see many basses I seriously covet these days but if you ever decide to part with it, I'd be very seriously interested!


  4. I was tempted, but I also have to sell before I buy, ahah! 


    I want passive, a pickup just a cm or so behind the P position, and a fat, hoarse tone. 


    I'm selling now, to be able to buy later. 


    I really like the style of the Serek, getting inspiration in classic models, like the Ric or the Ripper. 


    Didn't know about ACG, this thread is already giving me new information. I am curious about the new model. 

     I actually tried an Ibanez, the SRMD 200. Great neck, thin and fast. But the pickups and active electronics didn't excite me. 

    That Reverend had a great tone, that's an option, thanks! 

    Maruszczyk is definitely an option, but I was looking for something more retro in terms of design. 


    Thanks for all the examples, I hope to see them keep coming! 

  5. Hello all!

    As the title says, I'm looking for a retro/modern looking bass, with just one pickup, Passive and, more important, 32" scale.

    Last week I was able to compare 34", 32" and 30" basses, and the 32" scale was very comfortable and fast. 30" is too small for me.

    The simpler, the better. Passive, One Pickup.

    My favorite is the Serek Lincoln, but I was wondering what other offers are available in this medium scale.
