Black basses

Recommended Posts

My 2... pbass, black on black, roasted maple neck. Ibanez srx360. Also have an old Yamaha RB-something-bobby-basic but that's not black...

 

Some really nice gear on here.

Originally a 2003 MIM with rosewood board. The only original bits left are the body, bridge, and knobs!

My only black bass and my only bass!

I know I already spammed pictures of it in the thread I made when I ordered it and the Ibanez owner club thread, but pretty thrilled about finally owning my first 6 string bass, and I am actually slowly getting used to play it too.

I tuned it in D standard though (as in 3 half steps above regular 6 string bass B standard tuning or 2 half steps bellow regular 4 string bass E standard tuning), using D'Addario XL bass strings gauge .105 - .080 - .060 - .045 - .032 and the .024 string from a D'Addario's Fender Bass VI string set, which makes the tension of the individual strings pretty similar to that of the strings of a D'Addario 4 string bass gauge .095 to .040 string set.

 

An Ibanez SR306EB in Weathred Black finish, 34" scale, 54mm nut, 16,5mm string spacing, Naytoh body, 5 piece Maple/Walnut neck, 24 medium frets, Jatoba fretboard, onboard preamp with 3 band active EQ :

I thought I'd breathe some life into this long running thread with this Good Friday phone snap.

I have just set @Cosmicrain the task of building a black/maple P-alike to resolve exactly that issue with my collection 😎

Ohhh...you doing a build diary I can follow...?

I built a walnut / maple single coil 54p-esque bass two years ago, absolutely love it, but I'd love a black / maple version...but I don't trust myself with the painted finish...I'd love to watch how yours turns out...👍

A black version of this...20191011_135321.thumb.jpg.ead7f825534db1ca1eb0cfa8d9ed2beb.jpg

My main Ibanez Mikro Bass, after I successfully transplanted it's GSRM20 Mikro Bass neck onto a GSRM20B Mikeo Bass body in Weathered Black finish, also relocated the output jack socket from the stock side mounted barrel type one to a front mounted regular jack socket, and currently having an EMG Geezer Butler P pickup installed, wired directly to the output jack socket, and not a DiMarzio Model P as on this picture :

I am wanting a black block maple neck to replace the pearl block, haven't found a Jazz version yet. Fender sells a Precision version, but no... On the fence about a black Hipshot hi mass bridge, or maybe a black ashtray. I'm unsure it would even fit considering how far back the bridge is mounted, though...

I'm pretty sure those rear covers don't go over a badass; the bridge goes back too far on the body I think.

I carried my guitar down to Guitar Center and the little college silly billy wouldn't pull one out of the bag to see if it would fit. I would say I'll never shop there again, but...I've never bought anything from them. :D

Man...I had the guard off mine when installing the thumb rest, and wondered why I should put it back on when I don't even own a pick...In the end I reinstalled it because I didn't want to fuss with fixing the screw holes. This look, with a black stack pot control plate, would be the bee's knees in my lowly opinion.
