  1. Seconded. Honestly, just a few more options wouldn't kill some of these manufacturers. I wait with baited breath for even a classic vibe Mustang but it's never gonna happen. And if i never see another sunburst bass it'd still be too soon!
  2. I wish they'd do some of these mustangs the wrong way round!
  3. Must resist or my custom Maruszczyk is in the toilet!!! GLWTS
  4. That is really interesting actually as it doesn't make it clear that the Haeussel is a split-coil J. The humbucker is what I want - that'll be in your Valley Green Jake if I'm not mistaken
  5. I was tempted by the Haeussels - is there much in the difference? I couldn't pick much between them from your YT clips (but my ears are knackered!)
  6. Here's mine- just can't wait until I've raised the funds for it! - Lefty of course!
  7. Merry Christmas BCers! Quick question for those in the know- You may have read my Maruszczyk thread and seen the contributions from forum members using their excellent online configurator. However, a well-known Midlands bass emporuim says on their Maruszczyk page: "Contact us to make a custom order bass". My question is, because the online configurator is so good, and Adrian is quite amenable to questions, what would be gained by going through a middle man? Presumably there'll be some sort of charge? Confused!
  8. That is just to die for... may have to rethink the surf green 😍
  9. This is what I've come up with - Lefty of course!!
  10. Thanks for the replies - I think the Aguilar AG-4P 60s are the way to go. That configurator is driving me mad- I've already built 3 "dream" basses on it! Best re-mortgage the house
  11. Hello BCers, These look fairly niche instruments, and probably satisfied by a Jag for all you rightys out there; But such instruments are rare in the left hand world, so I was thinking of commissioning a custom 32" build for an upcoming big birthday (any excuse!) I'm also tempted by the Aguilar P pickup, I've heard nothing but good things about them. Does anyone have any experience with either? TIA
  12. Well I guess I like the idea of attempting to learn how a bass is put together but I severely lack the technical expertise I'd possibly need to do it. I could have a word with my friendly bass tech and see if he'd be willing to help me, he does do courses from time to time. Thanks for all the input everyone!
  13. Thanks for all the tips. It would be a shame for me to put a lot of work into it only for the build to be let down by a shoddy part. I can see a few Player Series necks floating around, so that might be a more sensible place to start. 👍
  14. I've been browsing the web recently for another P bass, but being a lefty they're not in plentiful supply in my price range. I've always fancied having a go at putting together a bass for the first time, I found a Squier P Special body on reverb for 80 quid which I fancy getting resprayed in shoreline gold. I was also looking for necks, and found a bound/blocked P width neck from China for virtually nothing! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Electric-bass-guitar-neck-34-inch-20-fret-Fretboard-left-hand-Truss-Rod-B1/391945640740?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908105057%26meid%3D9a7ae7e4c9274c3296cc187f5373ff2c%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D391945640740%26itm%3D391945640740%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2481888&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Ab8997d6a-ce16-11e9-828d-74dbd180ae35|parentrq%3Af5e0ffe916c0ad4a4ceaa819ffd36f70|iid%3A1 Then i started to wonder if it would be worth it and if I put a crappy part on the instrument it might compromise its playability. For 50 odd quid it looks too good to be true. For the headache it would probably cause me I should wait for a Fender or Squier neck to become available and start from there. Anyone out there got any experience of this? Cheers
