There're only two pickups. Here's what simonm wrote about 'em:

"there's a P-13 in the bridge (1940s pre-P-90 design, build is similar to the P-90 but without polepieces) and another late '40s thing from a National lap steel). The P-13 sounds amazing, as expected, but the National is a bit quiet in comparison despite it's size. The gtr plays nice, neck is comfy and body light (plywoood); am liking the cutoff Tele style bridge too."

He mounted the National lap steel pickup the opposite of its usual orientation. The part closest to the neck is where the strings normally would go.

Here's his original post: http://stompboxes.co.uk/forum/viewtopic ... el#p333907

this thread is amazing and I can't believe I am just finding it

the DIY String guide on that hacked up 2 pickup thing is my favorite part

It was done well though. Neck has been refinished and the body has been also."

:erm: Yes, of course, it was done at the factory. :facepalm: :whoa: :|:

Hack job advice request:
This bass has been in my closet for years and I want to do some bad amateur luthier things to it. What would you do? Gonna start with taking a door planer to the jagged edge so I don't cut myself but beyond that I dunno.

My friend gave it to me in trade for a ticket to a DRI show that I was just going to give him anyway. Looks like it took a pretty bad spill. The electronics aren't working right now and I don't know what's salvageable. I've been meaning to collect some parts for it but so far all I've got is a bottle opener I'm going to mount on what's left of the rear wing. Please advise.

Yeah, obviously, I have more than a passing interest in hack jobs. :snax:

Hah yeah I like it too, just never got around to fixing it up. I think the shape is an improvement over the original explorer-on-cialis design as seen here:

I'd like to save the bridge 'bucker if possible.
Ideas:
non-conventional neck pickup situation
whittling the lower dong into a siiiick wolf or something
some kind of on board effects like delay or fuzz
covering it in zz top style fur :hobbes:

Definitely not that. :lol:

Don't know how much you wanna spend. Maybe a mudbucker for the neck pickup though? Onboard fuzz'd be nice too.

I'd definitely "shrink" that horn though. At least so it feels balanced. :D

Strongly disagree with Chank...keep the horn. But to compromise...paint the bass purple.
Palm tree fret inlays would be cool...or it might not be which makes it... :lol:
