Serek normal only do short scale basses , but this one is made from some full templates they had left over
Did you find them easy to communicate with. Been tempted to order a short scale.

Is your pickup different to what they have in production?

They’re very easy to deal with, this pickup is a special version for a long scale. But they sell short scale versions of these as std

Isn't that the sound of rawkkkkkkk!

I really like half-rounds on it. I have a Weta P as well, a weird one that Dave gifted me, with a P-90 in the neck and normal P pickup in the bridge, one I got from you IIRC. That sounded really ultra-spanky with weird overtones.

I've been described as ultra-spanky with weird overtones before.


My case comes up next Tuesday.... ;-)

Taking a P bass along to rehearsal tonight actually. I do have rounds on it and it just delivers the most sublime P Bass growl. Heavenly indeed :-)

Just a TM deal

I used to get Sadowsky from Sydney dealer, I was a big fan of their black label flats (LaBella) but they don’t make them anymore

I haven’t decided what Bass to trial them on but it won’t be the Precision

Yes changing from Rounds to Flats can be a thing. At leas5 once a week I play a Bass with SS Rounds as penance for my sins

I think if I was gigging heaps of Rock Music and a Precision was my #1 then probably SS Rounds. The more plectrum the higher the likelihood too.
