Second, I replaced the original bridge with a Hipshot brass replacement bridge. And third, I replaced the neck pickup

with a Nordstrand Nordenbacker pickup.

It will come with a Tech21 Geddy Lee YYZ preamp and a Rich-E-Split with a TRS cable for using the Rickosound

1960’s Fender Mustang Frankenbass https://bestinbassguitars.com/1960s-fender-mustang-frankenbass/1960s-fender-mustang-frankenbass/2020/ https://bestinbassguitars.com/1960s-fender-mustang-frankenbass/1960s-fender-mustang-frankenbass/2020/#respond Sun, 05 Apr 2020 22:59:04 +0000 https://bestinbassguitars.com/?p=4234 Read more…]]>

 

This bass is made of a 1960’s Fender Mustang Bass neck and a home made body. The middle pickups are the original pickups and the bridge pickup is some aftermarket thing added by the guy who built it. Very cool bass. I get tons of compliments on it. Excellent with flat wounds. The neck and pickups alone are worth 500. Tuning pegs work great. Some finish coming off as is typical of the era. Could put the neck and pickups in a vintage body if you find one.

ZYDECO ONLY https://bestinbassguitars.com/players-rants/zydeco-only/2020/ https://bestinbassguitars.com/players-rants/zydeco-only/2020/#respond Thu, 19 Mar 2020 22:58:39 +0000 https://bestinbassguitars.com/?p=4189 Read more…]]> I Went to a show a while back actually I helped a friend of mine set up the P.A. System he has a business where he rents P.A. and mics, Monitors and stuff to traveling bands who come to town to do shows. And they dont have their own P.A. Systems. A Pretty nice gig  to watch music shows and get paid for it.

Anyway this show was at a private club Downtown it was a show featuring Zydeco Music, They had 3 Zydeco bands and they were good. I Was blown away, I Had heard cajon music a little, But never music like this I Was just floored with the rhythms And the percussion was amazing, The wash board instrument the players wear like a apron. Not sure what it is called, But they put a mic in front of it and it produces the greatest percussion sound you can only imagine. how this thing sounds.

Alot of the vocals sound much like the blues.  And the beat is Bass Heavy and makes you want to dance. Then throw in a small accordion like squeeze box, A Harmonica, And one band had two fiddles . But all had at least one fiddle player. Mix this all up with a on the beat drummer, And some make you cry telecaster Riffs. And even a small organ

You Got Zydeco.  A Couple of the bands had horns whether horn ,fiddle same guy

Or a committed horn section. Were are talking alot of band members

These guys have alot of fun and so does the crowd. I Never saw the dance floor empty.  Really simple songs that sound amazing . I `m putting a You tube video below so you can hear some zydeco this is my new love and im looking to get out and find some Zydeco Musicians to play with. Well they took down my You Tube video so if you want to check out the ZYDECO Spell it just like above In the search bar on You Tube you will get some ZYDECO..
