I wouldn’t normally sell this type of bass, but this one is a bit different, looks good and plays brilliantly!
A custom made ’51 P Bass, using top quality parts throughout. The bass was built as follows:
Super light ’51 La Cab P bass body by Marc Rutter (USA)
Warmoth Standard Jazz profile neck, 38mm nut width, satin finish
51 vintage bridge
Gotoh GBR640 vintage resolite tuners
Greasebucket circuit loom by KiOgon
Bareknuckle Split P pick up
Custom made “Pirate” light
DR strings
The bass was originally made about 7 years ago, and has since had a couple of changes. Firstly the neck which is now an expensive Warmoth 38mm Jazz reverse headstock, and then latterly the pick up.
It had a standard ’51 single coil pick up to start with, but the current owner found that the string volumes weren’t balanced and decided to have a Bareknuckle Split p installed instead. This was done by Tim at Mansons Guitar Workshop, who also installed the light as well. The light is controlled by the mini toggle between the pots, and has 3 positions – On, Off or sound to light. It works really well!
Condition-wise, it has been used, and is best described as lightly reliced. It’s also has wooden button added to use as a thumb rest.
