So I'm not really a bassist, but now I am. My band needed a bassist so I decided to do it. Mark Hoppus bass, got it used for $340! With a hardshell case, strap and strap locks.





Edit: trying to upload more, but for some reason it's not working right now. So that may be all you get Surf green, pearloid pick guard. couple dings in the back but I'm fine with it .

Anyone know why the pickups are slanted down towards the E and G strings?

The screw is probably tightened more than the others. Very cool bass, btw.

Pickup height adjustment, might be off, but usually they have some uneveness to provide even sound.

Do you mean Marks bass that he named lettuce? If so that's the same one.

The fretboard isn't flat. So the action is adjusted so the strings are even. So that means the G and E string are slightly lower than the middle 2. Though the E string not as much because it's fatter. The pickups are slanted so that each string is the same distance away from them.


Have fun with your bass.
