SWG Blue Tiger Bass


Hi everyone!

We were tasked with building a P-Bass replica for a young customer over the last few months. The design brief we were given called for some pretty eye catching paintwork! Specs are listed at the bottom of the post!




It proved fairly challenging to hand paint these tiger stripes but we think it came out looking pretty good! The blue and the black provide a really vivid contrast!



We had a custom decal printed per the customer's request and it looks great against the all black headstock!



Unlike most P-Basses, the customer had requested that we put the output jack on the side rather than the traditional scratchplate mounted option. In place of the output jack we were asked to fit a killswitch instead.
