White Basses Rule! You can change their appearance so easily with a pickguard and hardware.

Coming soon my Fakenfender Peavey-will explain with photos once I get the rest of the parts next week.

Finally got it (near) finished. Peavey plywood body from a Milestone II, Mighty Mite neck with black Schallers, (came with the decal). Lindy Fralin pickup, black pearl custom pickguardian pickguard, black bridge and knobs, TI super alloys. Plays and sounds great for a bargain price.

Took it out for a spin tonite and it sounded great. Still needs a little fine tuning on the set up though.

Not exactly a Fender, but definetly a half breed, this Lynx/L-1000 has been getting some gig love.... and some commnets on the flame job

It came in desparate need of some love. Cracky pots, fret sprout, and pickups way out of whack. It is a happy camper now.
