My Fender Masterbuilt 57 Precision Bass in closet classic LPB
 

One piece quarter-sawn AAA Birdseye maple neck (7.25-12 compound radius)

 

Josefina Campos matched P/J set pickups. Bridge pickup is in 60s position

 

Custom shop RSD bridge

 

The best playing and sounding bass I’ve ever played! 

 

(also pictured is my daughter’s 1/32nd size violin)

Ooh that compound radius spec sounds like it’d be wonderful 🥰

Yes it’s really nice, quite similar to recent ‘Elite’ fender range but with more vintage feel towards the nut.  It took me about 2 years to find the right combination of strings, relief, and string height to balance the setup at both ends of the neck though! 
 

The whole vibe is a nice of mix of 50s chunkiness, 60s width, and modern ‘soloing’ radius. I love it

That looks like an awesome beast!  I’d be tempted to see what cream strat knobs look like on it - the pu covers and bridge give. Different vibe to a P visually.

I had that very thought myself. I’ve not followed through on it yet although I have made a mock up on one of my favourite design-a-bass websites
