Vintage Status Sillhouette p bass copy $400 or best offer
A parts bin project begun with an orphaned 80's Korean p bass body and Status neck same vintage also built in Korea. As is usual, with a recycle bin project, the challenge is to end up with a working guitar that plays and, sounds great with an excellent chance of being around for quite a while. The bridge is new as is the pickup, pots and cap. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Instead of buying a cheap bass built in the sweatshops of China or India put this one back into circulation. You'll know it already has a history and the carbon footprint is minimal
The bridge and knobs have been deglossed to fit in with the worn finish on the body and neck which is showing the wear one would expect on parts rescued from 35 year old instruments. Not badly knocked about or a fake relic job, it's real wear done by real players, the stories of whom I know nothing.
Ideal for a young player looking for a real bass or a guitarist looking for a decent low cost bass for recording. Also an excellent candidate as a loungeroom bass. The electronics are all top grade and I've gone to the trouble of shielding the cavity and guard with copper foil making it very quiet in operation.
Carlton custom built instruments are made to exacting standards using top quality air dried tone-woods and the finest quality, industry standard hardware available. They are built by my hands from start to finish specifically for you. I I won't compromise quality for price. I am dedicated to creating fine tone unlike the multinational guitar factories that are dedicated to making money.
