Lack of headstock makes this harder, but the bridge and twin outputs can't be common. Any help appreciated.

some sort of modified precision special with emg's?
i thought i had magic fingers once, and had uncovered the fountain of love.

turns out my girlfriend was just peeing on me.

^Why do you say EMGs?

The two outputs might indicate that it has piezo saddles in the bridge.
#8
i think emg's because they usually dont have exposed pole pieces, but i suppose bartolini's don't either. the second jack (the one with the strat style plate" looks too big to be a 1/4in, maybe its got a built in DI?

that bridge does look big enough to accomodate piezo saddles and related equipment too.

I think after this relentless adding for the last 10 mins, that Dan is the coolest looking. Goddamn welsh people and my great etc etc etc etc etc granddad is welsh.

thats the p/u combo of a fender p deluxe, pretty versatile, but the knobs and switch dont look fendery, niether does the top (if you were playing it) cutaway
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

Well, it has the body of a P-bass, but then it has a Jazz pickup and two jacks...I don't know.

A fender, though.
The.

It has 22 frets. That's what makes me think it isn't a Fender. The only Fender I can think of off the top of my head with 22 is the MIA deluxe which has active electronics which this one does not. Then again it could be a Warmoth neck or something. So, in any case it is just a heavily modified P-bass model of some kind. It's not a P/J I think because there's only two knobs so especially if it was Fender it started out just P.

The upper horn looks odd for a Fender P style body. Too long and thin, unless it's a trick of the lens because of the angle.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.

Agreed, so we've pretty much decided its not a Fender. They wouldn't do creative things like this

Oh and sinan why do you want to know?

Haha, Faithful Fender, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Nothing wrong with that

Yeah. I'd hazard a guess at an extra XLR on the side, 1/4" jack, normal knobs for volume and tone and a three way pickup toggle. If there's a piezo in the bridge, there's no visible way to turn it on or off.

Ladies and gentlemen... ta-daaaah... the answer. P-bass plus. Early 90's, custom shop production run job. 22 frets, re-proportioned body, Lace Sensors, massively solid fine tuning bridge (possibly Schaller-made, but defo a special), and Tele type knurled chrome knobs. No EMG's, no Warmoth neck, most defo an MIA precision. Just as it left the factory.
The additional socket is IMO a photoshopped addition. I reckon it just looks a bit 'fuzzy' in the lo-fi image I've been looking at. If you really wanted an extra output, maybe for pickup splitting a la Ricky, or midi (tho no GK-2B is in evidence), or for a piezo bridge/saddles, or an XLR cannon (I've seen it done...) there's enough space beside the original socket. Why the hell put a Strat recessed socket in that's only gonna get in the way?
I should coco, I've got one. If you can be arsed to call up the "rate the bass of the person below you" thread from a few weeks ago ('cos I can't) you'll find some pics of it. Resplendent in special edition midnight blue metallic paint (not the same as the catalogue midnight blue) with a lovely saltire sticker on the scratchplate.
I thankyou...
