Natural relicing is the best way! I Fixed the stripped out Bridge screws Strung her up with some fresh Boomers and intonated her on Wed and it is dead on! I couldn't believe it!! After playing them back to back with all the other P's I own the Green Monster kills all of them! Easily will become my main player along with the 83 Sienna. What a KILLER Bass! I can't say enough!

Vintage Fender basses and 70's SVT's that about sums it up for me.

I assume the previous owner found a place where the finish lifted and just pulled at it, not intending to strip a piece all the way off the back..... probably in the middle of a song on stage. [smilie=fun_84.gif] Kinda like picking at a scab I rekon. [smilie=smilie_kopf.gif]

Tom Peterson from Cheap Trick.. I regret that one a little but I just love the 70-76 B-neck profile and not a big fan of the fat and flat c shape neck profile.

To me, That bass has always looked like it's had some extreme relicing help. Maybe with extreme opposing temperatures (while sitting on a paint can). Not saying that it's not a great bass - just saying that the relicing does not look natural to me.

Kinda reminds me of my Frankenstang.

I know i tend to build basses that are kinda shiny/kina polished etc...... but man I love a road-worn P bass..... they ARE the truth for sure!

a friend of mins has a MINT 59 precision........ oh yes, it will be mine someday.... not sure how.. but it WIL be mine!

and I'll tell you, it's a relatively sad day in high schools everywhere. 99% of students no longer recognize "Bueller......anyone?????? Bueller??????" But interestingly, If I say "NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition" or "I will taunt you a second time!" Python references are still recognized by many kids.

kfh

p.s...... I'll bet that the bass in question had some sort of padded stand and the padding was right where that peeled line is on the back. the plastic/rubber in the pad interacted with the lacquer of the bass....
