@Lesfunk - is that a Badass on there? Nice P !
Recently got a Highway 1 Jazz which has the BadAss II on it as standard - it's a good lump (but I needed a 0.05" allen key to adjust the saddles and they're a bit less than standard!)

It’s a Hipshot kickass bridge. A very well machined item. Much nicer than the Badass 2

For Sale - 2010 Highway One U.S. Jazz complete with Badass II bridge... hence £14.60 o.n.o (call it 20 bucks then). ;)

@ezbass - I should recognise yours but I don't, sorry - tell us more. It has a very refined tort plate so it's something special.

It’s a Maruszczyk Jake L. It has a chambered, alder body (3.25kg), katalox fretboard, Maruszczyk’s own p/up, 40mm nut width (very comfy). Sounds just as it should.

Here's my recently refinished P!, It was only a cheap bitsa copy but it plays lovely!! 😁

If you've ever wondered what a Zebrano P looks like, wonder no more, just built this with a Jazz neck, Duncan Designed pup and one of Johns finest looms, oiled finish only to keep it feeling organic. Fancying a better pup though.

I've been trying to sell this bass for ages, for an absolute pittance. I'm not giving it away as it's too nice, so I'm keeping it... everyone else's loss is my gain!
So in the last 20 minutes I've swapped the neck and the bridge - it's now an absolute peach. I'll let it settle overnight and give the setup a final tweak in the morning, but it's already almost perfect (apart from the pickup alignment). 🙂
Spec is:-
Unknown (but very light) body.
Kmise neck with extra fret overhang.
Genuine Fender tuners.
Kent Armstrong pickup with good quality solderless loom.
Wilkinson bridge with brass saddles.

2001 50th Anniversary Fender P. I hide it in the wardrobe because it's too valuable to scratch.

2016 Am Pro P. This one's the player, lightweight, lovely neck and pre ding'ed by the former owner.

Nothing fancy here. My main gigging bass - a '97 USA totally stock with EB Cobalts on. Found it with its original chainsaw case and candy. The original owner got it from Gak in Brighton in '98 (it's stamped late '97) and played in pub bands but it was (and is) virtually unmarked.
I have another 90s USA (a Jazz) and I find the finish of that period very tough indeed - i have banged this P once but the paint is like an armour coat.
2nd pic is the GB corner - messy but homely. The 900/Uber is the gigging rig, the combo for home and smaller stuff.

So this P is what I call my workingman's bass - no frills, does the job and occupies that space between kick and guitars REALLY well - that's my space so eff off :)

Cheers fella - I wish I could claim ‘making’ it, but a Status neck is what elevated what would be a normal bass - they really are things of joy both in feel and sonically - it goes from pleasant music to straight up extra bite with distortion in a blink of an eye.

Myself and a few other Tyneside-based BC'ers did this recently... More here.

Don't often see that many Ps all together, not even in a shop. Well, maybe Bass Gallery in the old days.
i'll take the LPB 5 back on the left please.
Seriously, if I ever find an older LPB Precision I'll be on it like a...

And an Acoustic wall along the back. My oh my.

I have a ‘modern’ looking bass that has this same type of wood from a company called ‘Pairadice’

Well as I can never leave anything alone and was looking to upgrade the pickup on the Zebrano P I went a bit overboard and got a Duncan 1/4lb and a rather fetching Wenge Warmoth neck, something in me thinks this is a bit of a keeper now. Tuners and a new bridge will be next on the hit list!
