This T30 bass is short scale and based on a Lefty Telecaster.
The body I used for this model was new.
The bolt-on maple neck has a vintage tint maple fretboard with dot inlays and has been shimmed slightly to fit the telecaster neck pocket.
It is equipped with my lightweight tuners (it has little or no neck dive) and 18mm bridge and has a 12K neck pickup and 12K Rail humbucker at the bridge with a 3-way pickup selector giving a great range of tones.
It weighs in at around 7lbs, which means you can play for longer without tiring. Little or no neck dive with a textured strap but shiny nylon straps are not recommended.
It currently has a very low action which can easily be raised according to your taste. Strung with a brand new set of stainless Rotosound RB45 strings. (45, 65, 85, 105)
It sounds like the love-child of a Precision and a Jazz with the standard guitar pickups fitted. They give a surprisingly wide tonal range, making it a very useable bass.
