Soloking bass

Would be easy enough to build as a bitsa - bit of extra pickup routing on a J body, cut a Tele Thinline-ish scratchplate then whatever neck/hardware/control layout you wanted.

 

Reminds me a bit of the Aria Avante Steve Bailey sig.

Who makes pickups like these?

I know I've seen that principle being used for the Old Smoothie. Where else?

 

Edit: D'OH just use a 5 string pickup you foooool

Don't you just LOVE this piece of weapons-grade marketing BS?

 

INSPIRED BY CUSTOM SHOP QUALITY HAND MADE GUITARS AND BASSES

 

In exactly the same way, my life is inspired by the lives of Julius Caesar and Errol Flynn. 🙄

I have no opinion about the quality, other than it looks similar to other basses at the same price point, but being a direct copy of the RB is no bad thing, as that is a cracking bass and one of Fender’s best. Of course, the proof will be in actually being able to play it - are the electronics good enough as I assume it’s passive like the RB?

Fortunately it's fairly hard to screw-up passive electrics.  It's cheap,  nasty active EQs that are a real issue on budget basses.

My concern about this bass is that the pickups wouldn't come close the the RB's items (weren't they a Bill Lawrence design?)

I'd  love a "proper" RB. Preferably a five. But finding one AND having the requisite funds at the same time...
