Currently working on this one, in stage two of mods. Next up are new pickups, electronics, and shielding it all, then maybe a new bridge.

What's with the huge cover over the strings and one of the pickups?

Fender basses used to come with pickup and bridge covers, I've always liked the look, but didn't want the rear cover (it's pretty massive and gets in the way). Just wanted to give it a little bit of a vintage touch.

My newest . Body is an SX tele copy. Neck came from an SX short scale bass. Reshaped headstock. Painted using Rustoleum rattle can paint. Pickguard was made by me.

I am new to bass playing but to me it sounds every bit as good as an off the shelf Squier bass that I have. I set it up exactly like the SX (from Rondo ) Jazz Bass that was used as a donor for parts. It plays just as well as the SX did. What I like about this bass is that it feels very similar to a 6 string telecaster because of the short scale. Other bass players have played it and seemed impressed too. I have only about $250 invested in it. For that amount it sounds very nice. I've been modding guitars for a few years now. This is my first attempt at a bass. I will soon start another build that will duplicate this one but now I know how to do it and can eliminate all of the mistakes that I made. Mostly under the pickguard with the routing.

By the way, the plate around the bridge pickup is for cosmetic reasons only. It covers screw holes and the old pickup routes that had been filled. I made this where I work on a CNC router. It is routed from 1/8" aluminum. I work at a sign shop.

I have to say I think that plate is pretty awesome. Gives it a unique feel. I like it.

Sweet lookin' Ibby... I almost bought an Ibanez as my first bass, but I walked into Guitar Center and saw the Epiphone Viola on clearance and had to take it...

Since I posted a little over a year ago, I've more than doubled the size of my then-2-instrument bass stable.

New additions are a Peavey Fury bass ($125), Epi Thunderbird bass ($100), and Peavey T-40 ($275 w/hsc). Here's the whole lot, click to look:

Is that a T-20 in there too?

The black one that looks like a T-20 is the Fury. The original Fury was just a slight remodel of the T-20, including the same angled Super-Ferrite pickup. Later, the Fury was a US-made P-bass copy, and finally an import 2-humbucker bass. So I guess you could say mine is a "Fury I."

Ah, cool. I had thought of the Fury as a P-Bass, so that's why I was confused.
What's the difference between the Fury and the T-20? I've got a T-20 and I love it to death. Am really wanting a 40 and a 45.
