Built in 2009. Burled Amboyna top with a Fender USA Telecaster neck. Owner completed with a set of Seymour Duncan pickups. Killer!
This will be the guinea pig for the above Explorer. It has a date with the checkerboard maker...maybe.
(Actual photo coming soon!)
He might have one of these! This was the first attempt to create the Vai bass.
I know, I know...it probably sounds like crap. But how cool is that??
Because they are ridiculous...just like the guy playing this one! (Come on, man...it was a Halloween gig...give me a break!)
An old Washburn Bantam bass. Ohhh...I WILL have one of these someday!
The body has been completed and is on its way! NEON paints are on the way! The neck for this project will probably come from the one next door to the left. I am efforting an old Ibanez neck with sharktooth inlays, but am not having much success so far. UGH.
Heavy relic finish by MJT Guitars in Surf Green, tons of quality parts including two necks (both with painted headstocks - one reliced, the other is stock).
Includes period-correct '66 Fender case (rough shape, but correct). Plays great, sounds great, LOOKS KILLER!!
***SOLD - OCTOBER 2015***
Fashioned from a Mighty Mite Telecaster guitar body. The neck is a Jazz bass model that has had the headstock shaved down to a 50's style. Old Kramer Duke "double-jazz" pickup in the bridge position and a Seymour Duncan Antiquity in the neck position.
Funky, funky, funky! Found as a complete carcass, less electronics. Currently in the process of wiring in some old Spector pickups (they were the most powerful!). Check out those tulip style tuners!
This was a First Act Custom Shop guitar that was built for Rick Nielsen. Found a body blank on eBay...and am now in the process of figuring out how to fashion this into a bass. Does anyone have any pink binding material lying around???
A good place to start...'nuff said!
The coolest doubleneck of all!
Or ANYTHING played by George Lynch, Vivian Campbell, or Steve Vai!
This one is going to be AMAZING!
I picked up a couple vintage Warmoth pieces on eBay a while back. An Explorer body and a REVERSE HEADSTOCK Explorer neck. I am planning to give these the checkerboard treatment, ala Rick Nielsen. Look...how many times do I have to tell you that we love CT?
Like this fine example of a Steinberger XP-2!!
ESP Jazz body in a translucent blue to which we added a lefty MIM Jazz neck. There are EMG passive pickups in the neck position, and the factory ESP pickup at the bridge. It sounds great and has absolutely no issues. Fun to play, and looks cooler than your run of the mill Jazz bass!
