I decided a while back that I wanted to do a build for myself with parts I like. I really dig the way a jazz bass looks but the neck is too skinny and in my opinion dosn't sound like a bass should. I could have cheated and gotten a Mark Hoppus signature and slapped in a jazz bridge pup but what fun is that? Started with a Samick bass from a local guitar shop and a bunch of goodies from Guitarfetish.com, ALLPARTS and Fender. Need to string her and set her up and she'll be ready for practice sunday. With the smokey tobacco burst finish, I think the best name for her is Rhonda. If you have any helpful hints, fire em my way. Thanks, enjoy.
