  1. That looks mean to the bone awesome looking bass
  2. I think probably the one I particularly loved was considered not a great era for squire, being Korean made, I think. I thought it sounded great however. Got to say I've played a few of the recent squires and I've been seriously impressed!
  3. Cool looking bass that! I've had many a squire. Great basses. Particularly loved an early year precision I had for my first bass. Late eighties or early nineties made. Kept going back to it over much more expensive fenders for gigs!
  4. You know that just didn't occur to me?!! It's a tempting option that. Self build I'm probably looking at £5-600 min if going with a fender neck and half decent pickups
  5. I know the Hoppus bass had a p bass neck etc. Perhaps somwhere in between might be nice, tempted to go full jazz?
  6. It's a lovely looking bass! I've a strong preference for the standard jass pickguard and three hole control plate however. The driver is to achieve a bass with the look and feel of a Jazz Bass (minus bridge pickup) but the with sound of a 51 single coil. I'd contemplated a Mark Hoppus bass but prices seem to be climbing, then thought may aswell get an American P, but having previously owned a few and not quite finding the colour combo etc I think I'm going to try this custom build with the single coil as opposed to split etc. Fingers crossed! Just what neck to purchase...
  7. I think I'm going to give them a go! Also I'll have a go at the nitrocellulose paint finish myself. Shoreline a gold here we come
  8. Just by way of an update. Contacted warmoth and the are happy to make what I'm after, just by adding notes in the online order. They have been very helpful! Only thing is I've happened across https://www.guitarbuild.co.uk/ and they appear to do exactly what I'm after. Anyone any experience with these guys?
  9. I didn't know that! Very interesting!
  10. Interesting looking bass that!
  11. Ok so my hunt for an American PB has draw a blank currently. Thought I'd investigate building my own bass. I like both JB's and PB's particulary the feel and look of a JB both neck and body but the sound of PB. Well that said the split coil of a PB just seems a tad restrained. Happened across some sound clips of a 51. Sounds like what I'm looking for so got onto the warmoth website. No option for a JB body with a 51 pickup cut? If I'm reading it correctly. Anyone done this or know of someone who has? Seems little info etc
