Brooks EBPL
« on: December 11, 2016, 12:51:55 PM »
Birth of a bass; The first Brooks EB-PL.
Long scale (34"). Mahogany body. Mahogany set neck. Bone nut. Single coil handwired pickup. Schaller lightweight tuners. CTS pots, Sprague capacitor.
Almost ready. Only a few details left to do.
I'm pretty excited about this one! \m/

Nice combination of visuals from different brand lines!

Yeah that was the idea.
Body shape (construction and wood) of the fifties EB-0.
Long scale plus single coil of a fifties P.
Location of a Stingray pickup.

Thanx guys.

I'll post soundclips when it's finished. Still have to do some minor things.

I've been kinda busy. Still haven't done the final touch. Need to level, crown and polish the frets. But after that, she's ready.
Did shoot some pics though ;-)
