    Thanks! This summer has not been great for rehearsal or shows. I usually jam with my father (drums) and his older buddies on classic rock songs. I've been working on the recording and production side of things instead. Its paying off.

    I ordered a new soldering iron I'm waiting for it to arrive to put in the QP. Should be here in a couple days.

      Nice bass!

      I don't know about you. But personally I think it looks cheap, with a bridge like that, where the ball ends show :o.

      But the neck with inlays, and colour, is really beautiful.

      Congrats.

        I don't like the stock bent metal bridge either, definitely going to replace with a high mass at some point. Also probably going to change the tuners out, these feel pretty cheap. I might go all black with the hardware to match the pickguard and block inlays. I'm hoping to have time to change the stock pickup out for my QP today.

          Going to all black hardware would look great on that bass.

            Love the block inlays. So much in fact that I've put these block inlay stickers on two of my instruments: https://www.inlaystickers.com/collec...zz-bass-blocks
            Super helpful to seeing fret markers without too much eye-aversion.

            I'd consider leaving the stock bridge and not going high mass. High mass can absorb vibrations of the strings and you don't get as much wood resonance. OR, you get more wood resonance. There's no way to know beforehand. But if this is a project instrument, heck, try everything!

            Since it seems like you're going for a modern, zingy type of bass sound, can I make a recommendation that you didn't ask for? These La Bella RX roundwound strings are a blast: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/det...5-105-4-string
            Tight lows, super balanced, a real joy under my fingers. YMMV

              alex: Thanks for the heads up about the high mass, I will certainly consider it. I've heard good things about those strings, I've only ever used Rotosounds but I'll give them a try.

                The QP is going to sound phenomenal in that.

                  That DID sound good. What was that from? I recognize it, but can't quite put my finger on it.

                    Thanks for the comments guys. That was just a little improvised thing I came up with on the spot, it does sound familiar to me too though. Finally got around to installing and recording a clip with the QP. Listening back I probably didn't mix enough low end in, but you still get the idea. I used the same chain and plugins for the new clip, even though I wanted to add a little bass, I didn't, for comparison purposes. The only thing I changed was the pre amp gain on the plugin because the output of QP was high enough to push the same amount of gain into fuzz bass territory. I tried to match the gain.

                      Man - I got a Squire P-Bass Special a while back (P/J) and after a little neck shim and adjusting the pickups I freaking LOVE it.

                      Great choice.

                        I went with the Hipshot. A little pricey, but it does hide its balls.

                          That looks like a Hipshot Kicka$$ bridge; longcat has one on her Squier Bronco

Which is why many people play electric guitars but very very few of them are actually musicians.

                            Yup. That's exactly what it is. Nice Bronco.

                              I like those. I put one on my short scale Talman. No complaints.

                                Mosky Golden Horsie or actual preamp?
