    Here's my '99 USA P white blonde ash with rosewood. You can just see the grain in some lights. These pics make it a little lighter than it is in the flesh. Very nice pickups and has a sort of vintage vibe look.

    Stunning! Is that an LPB refin?

  5. I like the Tort. 500 bases? Wow. You’ve spent more time trading than playing them.
  6. thank you @Rick's Fine '52 That'd be great. Wait until the rain comes next week! I'd especially love to see a few more detailed shots of the 1961 Jazz Olympic White Also your '53 Precision blonde, blackguard, and 1966 Precision white blonde if you have an easy link to them. That's a spectacular collection and great taste. R
  7. For me there’s a little extra woody clunk less present on other bass designs. That’s the best I can do!
  8. That's beautiful! Right choice to swap out the natural rest I think. Here's a really nice 54 tribute parts build I bought from @Sparky Mark
  9. Interesting the Road Worn finish painted areas feels like it is not nitro but it doesn’t look like it would be as trivial as you’ve heard to remove. I considered this with the Flea Body but I’m sure Someone out there wants it and I didn’t want the messy work of stripping and refin myself. I don’t really have the Right kit for one thing.
  10. Yeah it sort of feels plastic. Like a transfer. It doesn’t feel like realnnitro. Jon’s does of course and it smells lovely too.
  11. So here is my parts stack knob replica. I tried the Fender Flea bass - essentially a '61 replica relic and I thought it was absolutely perfect for me... apart from the mechanical relic work and rather grey faded pink which I know some love, it's fantastic. It has a really wonderful aged neck, great Fender '64 Pure Vintage pickups and proper USA CTS Stack pots. So I waited to find one, and I bought one used last year from a West End theatre musician locally for a very good price with hard shell case - to then customise it to my needs. To be frank, once I'd got the Flea used it for some recording and it is was so good I was in two minds about breaking it up. But I didn't like the finish much and I really wanted it to be aged Oly white! Rexter Guitars https://rexterguitars.co.uk/ I have worked with a few times and Jon there does lovely thin nitro finishes the way I like them to my specs. Plus he's a lovely guy to work with. (no affil). So I did a bunch of research on the early '60s stack knobs and sent him some sample Oly White pics I liked and described the way I wanted it aged. So I commissioned a replacement body from him (the original Flea I will sell - ping me if you want it). I really think he did a great job (as usual), a hit of yellowing, fine checking, light distressing... so this build is a Fender-Rexter bass. The body, and hand made made tort guard are Rexter Guitars, Fender Pure vintage cover parts, aged wood pull bar, natural bone nut cut cut are by my me. It plays and sounds great.

  12. Sweet. Very cool. Thanks for sharing. And got mine finished last night. Earlier than I thought. I’ll post some pics and details when I get some time later.
  13. That’s a mighty fine specimen you have there. Lovely.
