Sunburst Jazz Bass with Precision Bass Pickup?

Post by FinallyBlossom » Sat Jun 22, 2019 6:20 am

I wonder if anyone ever built something like this:

A Sunburst Jazz Bass without the chrome control plate and just a Precision Bass pickup? I know: it's almost the same like a Mark Hoppus Bass but in Sunburst and a tone knob.
I love the Jazz Bass shape but I'm really not into it's usual pickups.... I also prefer a "big pickguard" instead of the separate control plate.

Curious if someone shows up who's got a bass like that ;)

Mark Hoppus did/does have a sunburst:

Yeah, I know. But it's not/wasn't available in the stores :squint:

EDIT: and his own model hast just the vol. knob and a tortoise pickguard (I'm looking for a model with a black pick).

BTW:
Mark Hoppus' Signature Bass is equiped with a P-Bass neck and a string-through-body bridge. So all in all it's far away from what I'm looking for :/
