So I'm back with my next relic project...

Putting a cheap Alba P-bass into the time machine and having it come out as a played but loved 1959 P-Bass style bass with nitro finish and upgraded parts.

This is how it looked when I started:

Here's where it's at today:

And hopefully it'll end here


I'm trying to keep the costs down and decided to give the project the name: "Precision Beauty: Poorman's 1959 Precision Bass"

So far the whole thing has a price tag of 165?...

Hope you enjoy it, even though it ain't a Tokai
