Research on the Tractor

Postby santo » Thu Jul 05, 2007 3:44 pm

I've been looking at every photo of Berry's Tractor and have seen a few clones. Seeing Tim3fingers Telebass give an alternative to some of the weight of a jazz body, but the fullsize rig is what was hoping to put together as a project.
Does anyone have any infomation on a Tractor build?

The Tractor was the Fender Jazz bass used by Berry Oakly of the Allman Bros Band. The Neck pickup was replaced with a Guild Starburst pickup that was relocated to the near back end position on the pickguard. It had a very distinctive tone.
