My rig is shit, so I thought I'd post my old mans bass as some people in the bass section mentioned that they would like to see photos when I described it. 1976 Fender Precision 5-string fretless, maple neck, swamp ash body. He's given it a few modifications over the years :

- Converted it to a 5-string himself a ten years after he bought it. Added an extra tuning peg, new bridge, new nut and 2 more string trees.

- Changed the stock pickups to DiMarzio in 1987 then changed them to Bartolini's (active) which are still in there and sound fucking awesome.

- Changed the pickguard more times than he probably even remembers.

- Added two thumbrests.

- Added a toggle switch.

- And an LED light to remind him to unplug during breaks as not to run the active battery down.

Beautiful thing, fucking heavy too

That is a fine looking instrument. The lack of frets looks so good on the maple fretboard and with the sunburst, imo at least. A lot of people I know don't like the look of maple fretboards but they're the best looking to me. And say, that's a crafty maneuver to convert a 4 string to a 5. Your pops should be proud to own it.

I'm probably gonna be buying my friend's bass this weekend. It's by a brand called Douglas and it's a 6-string. I had never heard of Douglas until I saw this bass but the thing's built like a tank and he only wants $60. So there's really no going wrong, especially for a first bass.

Thanks man, and yeah he is really proud to own it. He has owned about 8 basses including this one and still thinks that none of them sound as good as this one. He even owned a fretless Rickenbacker and said it doesn't even come close to this thing.

Indeed it is, if you're talking about the Kubicki. How in the hell did you afford that epitaph? Did you rob a bank?

I bought it second hand through ebay, from a guy in Italy.
The electronics went down after I had played for 30mins, I'm sending the pre-amp and pick-ups back to Phil tomorrow and he's most likely able to fix it.

I scraped down enough funds for the next bass.. I'm keeping an eye out for a 5-string Status S2 Classic currently.

Yeah, the head blows, but it actually sounds really good with that SansAmp preamp. I highly recommend it.
