Is it a 10 or 12 string? Struggling to count those big ugly tuners 😉

I ordered a Peterbuilt in April last year, it should be ready in a month or so.

Mine arrived last year... really pleased with it.



What did you go for?

Ooh that is a thing of real beauty. Got a hankering for a yellow bass. Can you share details please? 😍

Peter is more a compiler of parts than a luthier... Making the classic Fender shapes (and a couple of others) from Allparts bodies and necks, then adding whatever electronics / colors you want. I wanted a Limelight at the time of ordering but they couldn't do an unreliced finish...

I went for an opal yellow, stack knob, lined fretless jazz with Dimarzio DP123s and a matching headstock. He's got a great eye for detail and I like the little touches like the matching thumbrest.





Mine was around £1300 but after the recent nose dive in the value of the pound I'd expect they are a bit more now...

I have just entered The Waiting Room.

I'm not sure exactly what the turn around is going to be. It should be around 20 weeks, but it could well be more. In 35+ years of playing, I've not ordered a bass to my specification before.

Welcome... settle down in one of the assortment of battered mismatched chairs...

There is a machine over there which dispenses unidentified brown liquid into a tiny plastic cup, if you are interested...

What have you ordered?

Why aren't there any windows in here? It's a bit stuffy and yes, the chairs aren't the best are they!

That is nice. :) He is building me a bass with two P pickups and a DiMarzio Will Power humbucker near the neck. I liked my Yamaha Attitude and wanted an extra P pickup because I love the sound of dual P basses.

Hmm, that seems to be quite a lot of money considering it is just a parts built bass with a custom finish?

Yes it certainly wasn't cheap... Was the cheapest I could find for a custom color Fender shape at the time of ordering though.

If I was going for one now I'd likely go Maruszczyk.

^Wow! Congratulations on the bass and the Big five-oh! Love the flame on that neck, roasted too.. just lush.

Sorry can you pass that old national geographic about the Great Barrier Reef... I'm waiting for an ACG ... 8 to 10 months.. Which is amazing really but seems sooooooo far away right now...

How long is the waiting list to get into the Waiting Room now? I've just pulled the trigger with Paul Everson. No promises but I'm hoping for the best Christmas present ever.

Saw this post on the Bass Bin earlier.

Wondered if you were a BCer!

As I said, beautiful basses. I'm going to check them out now.

I'm waiting at least 12 more weeks for my Mensinger.

I'd hate to know how waiting 22 months for a build would feel.
