Tend to pick it up when my old mate comes round to play guitar
Fills the room instead of having two guitars competing with each other

It's a great instrument.

probably because you only need one per band and they can be programmed by a machine along with a few keyboard fills and a drummer

It is a great instrument. I wish I could play it, and guitar. Sigh.

Jumped earlier on an SX p bass on facebook - got it for a song, picked up within the hour. Doesn't look like its ever been played. Needs flatwounds which will cost as much as the bass did ;)

I've got a lot of time for the SX range, the fret ends on this are sharp and nasty but nothing 20 mins with file/emery/polish won't sort. Been after a cheap P for awhile and this will fit the bill - I love the SX LP I have and I've got at least 2 necks that are really really good!

For science


Tomorrow, just finished the fretwork - took longer than the anticipated 20 mins lol.... It is playing well now. May need to put a shim in the neck, the bridge is way higher than I like. Otherwise - it feels like a P, looks like a P and sounds like a P :)

It looks like this....

I may redo the headstock, but I may not :)

This is quite interesting, been looking at fancy overdrives / preamps for bass and then I found quite a few people raving about the Joyo guitar preamps, I'm gonna grab the american one, it sounds really good to my ears!
