‘72 (ish) P bass build

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I also like that you are aiming to replicate different era P basses, I've already got a 2011 Standard US and building a Custom 54, but I'm also thinking towards a 66' Slab now...to complement my Who covers band...the bug just gets you once you start...👍😁👍

I am more than a bit partial to a block inlay so I thought I’d see how this build would look with yellow blocks instead of the standard MOP effect..............

Just the electrics and headstock decal to fit then it’s ready for a set-up...............😀

I would have killed for that in 1976/77 :x

Aside, what have you got as a stand? Post a picture :)

The stand is just a very rudimentary stand that I made I’ll post a pic when I get back to my workshop 

It looks a lot like this but I’ve filled the back in and put a brace across the front which I’m going to shape a bit so it doesn’t look so square and chunky..............😀

They are going to be painted and thick draught excluded stuck on to protect the bass................😀

I reckon this would work well with any of the dayglo colours; yellow, green, orange... with complementary dayglo strings of course.

I think that’s a stretch too far even for me!!

I’ve been having a little play around with a new style headstock logo, I quite like this one............🤔
