New tort pickguard for my CIJ not-for-export, thanks to Mike Walsh for his craftsmanship and expertise. I can now get at the truss rod and see the LED when the P-Retro is charging. Happy days!

Where is the tort guard from?

Follow-up from the refin pics I posted above. Here's the finished beast. David Wilson did a very excellent job - it's nitro so he took a good while allowing the many coats to harden. Finish is absolutely as good as any factory nitro I've seen. 
And another plug for the rather overlooked 90s USA basses - really good build, full gutsy sound - affordable old Precisions at their best IMHO 👍

That looks lush! He is painting mine now, same colour and matching headstock. Handy having him just round the corner from me too! I am thinking parchment for the pick guard

Not strictly a precision because I’ve fitted my favourite old jazz bass neck to a 22 year old P body, which is aging nicely, I put Tonerider TRP1 pickups in yesterday with a kiogon loom with a 0.1uF cap , and with the labella LTFs , it sounds amazing.  I just need 2 flat top chrome knobs and a threaded bridge saddle and it’s done, I can’t put it down 🙂

I am massively favouring my P’s at the moment that is until the next build!

Looks great and a great combo - you could leave it no knobs?!

Thanks very much Cuzzie ☝️, it plays really nice, I actually don’t mind it with no knobs

Pic player?

 

Tort too!!!   🙂

Yep, pick and flats. Had to witch to playing with a pick after an accident left me unable to use my right hand fingers properly. Pick and flats give a really authentic 60s sound, especially with a Jazz bass (which was still in its gig bag as the guitarist loves my Precision!).

Two just finished a few weeks ago and painted and fettled by the brilliant David Wilson. Both sublime, both different and both keepers despite the amount of P basses I have 💙
 

Status neck stealth is a beauty but the Lake Placid Blue is epic 😍

Many P's have come and gone, mex, jap, USA...... But my modded Matt freeman bass will never go, oi love it 😘. The neck profile on these are spot on.

gotoh Bridge and tuners, kiorgan loom and pots and a vintage tonerider pup. I've Lightly sanded the neck to a satin feel, engraved stained wood scratch gaurd, a cheeky f neck plate and 70s logo.100%the best p I've had in my arsenal, thumps and plays like a dream.
