This is basically a '51 P-bass with a few custom shop twists: relief cuts, Jazz string spacing, Greasebucket wiring and a TV Jones humbucker. I'm not crazy about the mini pickguard but it does allow easy access to the truss rod screw and adjustments can be made without removing the neck. That's important because the neck joint is so tight it might be work just to pry it out of the body. The joint is so tight it's Sadowsky tight, one of the best I've seen on any bass at any price range.
Tonewise, this guy is meaty with plenty of low-end growl but enough mids to cut through nicely- think N.I.B by Sabbath. Mine showed up with medium gauge flatwounds that add smoothness to the overall tone but siphon off some of the highs. If you're looking for versatility you'll need to look elsewhere, this is a one-trick pony; the tone goes from fat to fat. The output is hot for a passive bass, about 25% hotter than my '64 Jazz reissue but lacks my Jazz's sustain.
Some might not prefer the "baseball bat" neck but I love it and it keeps with the vintage vibe. My Porrazo weighs in at 8.2lbs and my back is very grateful.
