Incoming...something! A Precision of sorts...

Made of Plexiglas. Has a 2003 MIM Std neck/tuners, Celinder/Kent Armstrong p/u, Badass II.

I must be mad.

Weighs 14lbs! Not much chance of any neck dive!

Looks great!

No neck dive but you may have neck issues if you play it on long gigs.

Interesting!

...but how's it sound?

I imagine the somewhat plastic/sterile sound of the Steinberger L series.
Although I guess the neck would at least provide some tone wood.
No?

Ooooh, it's a beast. Obviously no problem sitting down, but I am going to have to use a strap i bought years ago which is too over the top wide normally. Feels reasonable wearing it with that, but probably for only one 45-minute set!

Sounds: just like a P should, big and meaty. After modding to my taste (remove Badass II and replace with standard MIM Fender BBOT, TI Jazz Flats), and a good set-up, I'm enjoying it muchly!

Next gig is 19th, will give it a blast then!
