Finished building this thing a couple weeks ago. One piece mahogany body, stupidly fat roasted maple neck, rosewood bridge and a tailpiece, cheap GFS "vintage" j-bass pickups that are surprisingly kickass. Only gave myself 3 weeks to build it before a gig, so I still need to fine-tune it here and there and reshape the lower horn a bit, but I'm digging it.

Musicmasters are so fun, and that pink is pretty!
Is that the pickup that came stock in those Squiers? Or were they guitar pickups like the old Fenders that somebody swapped out on that?

I love it! Was it a basic Fender shape originally, or did you do it from scratch? Reminds me a bit of the Jeff Berlin signature.

The Squier models came stock with a bass pickup luckily! Sounds pretty decent, can't see myself swapping it out at all. Much better sounding than the old Musicmasters I've tried.

I just traced a jazz bass on a big slab of mahogany and started fucking with the lines. I wanted something that was functionally a jazz bass, but with a few tweaks. And a laughably massive neck.

Neat. Also, wooden bridges rule.

the t-40 I was intimate with, had been passed down like a doobie from all the prior high school jazz band bass players. As an undernourished white dude I had to sit down while playing it. It was a great sounding and playing instrument!
