The last of my "short scale folly" as my wife calls it :D

Picked this up last year locally in a bit of a state. The youngster who bought it and lost interest in it, had covered it in stickers that were a right pain to get off. The resulting residue was unsightly and I attacked it with a green pad. It removed all the gloss and left it the way it is now. I did intend to paint it but I never got round to it. 

****Please note: if you are looking for a pristine example of a Bronco, buy one from a shop****

I have replaced the tuners with Japanese Gotoh`s, stuck in an Artec humbucker attached to one of Kiogon`s wiring looms, put on a home made thumb rest,  painted the scratch plate black and fitted a BBOT bridge which works out ok re string spacing. Due to the pickup and K`s wiring loom, it`s sounds really decent. It`s as light as a feather and is an ideal mod platform for someone with the time and skill.

I put about £80 worth of parts plus the price of the bass into this so I reckon the price is fair. £110 collected from Paisley observing the usual or £125 posted to the UK mainland. I might have the original bridge and pickup somewhere so if I can find them, you can have them.

Actual weight is 3.2 kg or just over 7 lb`s. Just played it again to check it over. Just to say that the pickup is a guitar humbucker (the original is a guitar single coil version) and the tone control doesn`t really do much. This was through headphones, there may be more of a noticeable difference through an amp.

Had I not just pulled the trigger on a new Mustang, I'd've been all over this. Timing is everything. GLWTS.

No - it is true!!!

(I do suppose it is in the rules, but I don't have them committed to memory for every site I'm on; either way, though, it's still my bad.)

Yes - I did take the comment in good humour. 🙂

I would like a short-scale; maybe I'll pick one up one day.

How on earth is this still here?  It's a fair price without the upgrades and with them it's a steal.  If I hadn't bought a new one the day before, I'd have snapped this up.
