Not for the faint hearted, but light and very east to play! The body is very light Alder. The neck is made up of three pieces of figured red American Oak with a flame maple fretboard. Hipshot tuners and string retainer. Hand made replica bridge. Aguilar P6 pickup that is a monster! All passive, using CTS pots.

And of course it's 36" in scale.

It made the roof of the workshop buzz and vibrate.

It is the 'Beast"

That is a completely obscene P bass, but somehow it really works. I want to play it! And that's saying something for a 6 string. Maybe it's the colour scheme.

There's a real clash with the simplicity of the P electronics, and the extravagance of the extra two strings -

I too, want to play it :p
