SOLD - Bitsa P bass - shoreline gold - SOLD
£350
Exeter, Devon

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I am selling two bitsa basses that I put together over the last few years. This one is a P bass.

I have over £550 in materials invested in this bass so I am selling it at a loss. I just want to move it on so that I can start on the next builds I have planned.

The the body and the neck are painted in nitrocellulose from a rattle can. The finish on the body is not 100% perfect and there are a few tiny rub throughs of the shoreline gold. Perfect for a relic finish if you are into that kind of thing.

The body I assume is alder but I'm not an expert. I stripped it and refinished it.

The neck is from Allparts and was brand new. I sanded it and painted it with the satin Nitro.

38mm nut. The neck is quite chunky.

Machine heads - Schaller

Pick up - Unknown

Bridge - Gotoh OEM style

Weight on my not very accurate bathroom scales = 4kg

Gig Bag included

Any questions please ask.

Location is Exeter. I would rather not post as I don't have a hard case for it. Happy to meet up (safely) within reasonable distance.

I'm not a huge p bass guy but that colour combo is perfect 😍

It does look great I agree.

This would look amazing with an off white scratchplate...

I have an off white scratchplate and tried it with both. It also looked awesome but I preferred this tort one just a tiny bit more.

The finish seems to be well done although the hue is not exactly what I would define as shoreline gold; the fretboard’s rosewood is very nice as well.

All in all the bass looks very good! GLWTS!

If it’s a rattle can from Northwest guitars, then it’s not the OP’s fault - they sell it as shoreline, but it’s more gold, so he is correct - agreed though, good job

Thanks for all the nice comments. The paint was purchased from Northwest guitars. 
 

I think it looks great but I’m no expert on exact hues. 👍😁
