Telemaster Bass, Take 2

After finishing Version 1.0, my wife asked me to build a second one to give to her cousin Alan. Alan was the founder of the teenage band she was in somewhere back in the last century. Alan and the band meant a lot to her. This bass is her thank you gift.

What I started with:

2004 Squier Affinity P-Bass,(actually my first bass.) Parts used include the neck (with the headstock reshaped), neck screws, bridge and strap buttons.

Hipshot Ultralite " tuners.

LaBella flat wound strings.

The electronics include a Seymour Duncan SCPB-3 pickup, Alpha 250k mini pots, .100mf capacitor and a Switchcraft output jack.

Miscellaneous stuff includes Stew-Mac three-ply pickguard material, Stratocaster control knobs and a Gotoh string retainer.

Fully assembled this bass weighs 6 pounds, 12 ounces.

Version 1.0 is here:

Let's look at the details in 43 more photos!

Really enjoyed reading this. Very clean and tidy build, that is going to be one hell of a player. I think all guitars should have an accent line, they look so good.

Love the squid by the way
