Thank you guys.
The pickup is in the same location as the Thunderbird II. Thank you Scott for measuring it ;-)

I made a quick video, so you get an idea how it sounds:

I think it accentuates the fact that it is neck through.
I have no plans to put Ripper pickups in this bass... :o

Bill's Shop: Projects, Mods & Repairs / Brooks EB-TB

I've got a new bass ready!
Best one so far.

All the Brooks basses have been a take on the first EB-0 with Les Paul Junior double cut body shape. But they're all 34" scale and all of them combine shape of the EB-0 with the characteristics of another classic.
This time it's a love child of the EB-0 with the Thunderbird. Hence the EB-TB name.

I made the center piece nine ply mahogany and walnut. Glued flamed mahogany body wings to both sides.
I used nickel plated hardware. And a 9.2 K humbucker from EY Guitars.
The pickguard is three ply with the flame of the Brooks logo engraved. And the lines on either side or cut out. This was done by a friend of mine with a cnc machine.










Even looks good without pick guard...
I didn't drill holes for the screws yet. For the pictures with the pick guard I cut the screws off behind the head. Leaving just enough to screw into the pick guard without touching the wood of the body. And I used double sided tape to keep the pick guard in place. So if anyone wants to buy it without pick guard, that is possible without leaving the holes  8)

Interesting bull shit.

I don't play with the tuners.
I tune my bass and then play the strings.

Thank you John.
I'll post it when it's really ready.
I hope to get it done by the end of the week.

Glad you found your way to the Outpost back, John!
Our little conversation over at Facebook must have steered you gently towards the light ;-0

Good to see you're getting back on track!
Keep chiming in. You're welcome anytime.

That is an entirely different question.
Most designs that I really like, have never really sold well.  :mrgreen:

I'd like to see the bass version of the Fender Meteora that Dave posted the other day. I bet that it would look awesome.

I like it. A new shape that doesn't look too far fetched.
Why not? We've seen enough Telecasters, Strats en Les Pauls.

I thought it was the Jazzmaster

That explains the different pickups.

And the bridge combination
