bp0111_comm_rig1_nr.jpgMY ULTIMATE RIG IS A ’75 FENDER P-Bass, bought brand new when I was 21. It was modified with a D-Tuner, a Leo Quan Badass bridge, and a Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounder pickup. The Music Man bass amp was purchased from blues singer Tony Galla in 1978. The only change I made was to put in a JBL E-140 driver, which really opened up the low end. I also have a Shure wireless system, which allows me to jump out onto the dance floor during solos! —PAULIE KRIEDEMAN, VIA EMAIL

We get know that this is comfortable to order the legal dissertation or thesis close to this post, than to accomplish by personal efforts.

Really nice setup! I have a custom built P style bass from 1978 (partial work was done by Paul Reed Smith himself, before he became the PRS mogul!). It is modeled after a Fender Tele bass and even has an original Fender Tele bass humbucker...and it too has a Leo Quan Badass Bass II bridge and it is great!

Awesome rig. Perhaps you can answer a question for me, I bought a Fender American Standard Jazz bass two years ago and I use Long Scale 0.105, .085, .065, .050 Rotosound Round wounds and after having some big box music stores, i.e. Guitar Center hacks make a half hearted attempt to set up my bass, I spent the weekend doing it my self, for the first time. Well the result, is a nice straight neck and my E - String is about 13/64" off the last fret and my G - String is about 1/4" from the bottom of the string to the top of the fret. I noticed you have a Badass Bridge, 1) do you think the action I have is good or could I do even better with a different bridge. I am somewhat of a newbie and would appreciate any comments that you might have on setting up a bass and getting the best action out of it without fret buzzing. Thanks alot
