Finished P-Bass build

Recommended Posts

Not really a build diary but a finished photo! I’m getting better at taking progress pics, so future builds will be more detailed. 
Anyway, this is a five string, 24 fret P bass style build. Alder body, maple neck and wenge fingerboard. Radius is compound from 10-14”, and neck rear is asymmetric, 35” scale. I’m using a Bill Lawrence P45 and first impressions are great. It had a weird magnet configuration that they promise is fine for 4 or 5 string bass. This is the first passive build in years! Colour is Nissan Firemist metallic. What do you think?

I like the dot design. And the colour, is it a satin finish?

What's the headstock shape?

 

 

You have noticed that the D string has fallen off?

It’ll be better with a D string! I don’t have a new set, and just slapped this old set on but the string broke !
