Original colour was white. But it was extremely beat up when I bought it 527th hand. I decided white was lame. I had it paint metallic dark red. Never quite liked it...
I didn't rest until I gave back its original glory in a nice "refrigerator white"! ;-)
Stripped ALL the stock cheap guts today because my new EMG 35P4 in white turned up in really quick time considering it went from California to the UK - especially in these times
anyway, couldnt afford a 2nd pickup (maybe a DC for bridge moving this to neck - or maybe another 35P4 not sure yet) or a preamp yet, so im literally going just bridge pickup > volume > jack
Plugged the holes for now. This is such an improvement wow. Biggest difference is how noiseless it is. And all frequencies across the spectrum are exactly where you want them. Only gripe is its not as high output as I was expecting but I plan on using a compressor eventually after my bass, in the chain, anyway so.
p.s - anyone think i should get white pearloid tuner buttons to match the pickups long term? or keep just the pickups white, and everything chrome?
this bass was build from a Greek Luthier and very good friend of mine!
i wanted to share with you a bassist that i really like and i tried to be in his shoes as good as i could! so check one of my covers of Laco tayfa songs and bass player Nurhat Sensesl. If you dont know him you should absolutely take a look at his playing!
My new Sandberg Custom Thinline. This is a photo from the shop that sold it as I haven't been able to get any decent photos of it yet. It plays and sounds fantastic, it will be even better once I get some roundwound strings on it.
I'm new to the forum, I play in a metal band and both my basses are set up in drop A tuning.
here's my Fender P Bass, I Use DR DDT set of 65 to 125 strings on in which are awesome for such low tuning. Really well for staying in tune as well as having perfect tension. In past I used a 5 string set and got rid of the 5th string guage was 75 to 135 really yet tension was much flapier.
Here I have a Mazeti 6 string, there is not much i can say about this bass, It sounds awesome. I love this guitar, active pickups sound great however this guitar is very neck havey and is quite uncomfortable to play for long periods of time whilst standing up.
