Yeah. New Bass Day. A build. Bought this Warmoth Seafoam Green '72 P Bass body about 3 years ago when Warmoth had an anniversary sale. It was 30% off. I wanted to get a Warmoth standard P body but they had none in Seafoam Green, so I bought this one.
As a result, I had to cut a custom one ply white guard for the body to cover up the P pickup rout and the 72's differently shaped control cavity.
Of course underneath is a J neck rout over the top of a P rout.
I traced a P pickguard, then over layed a J pickguard over it and then had to add the "doggie tail" end for the controls. Has a side mount oval shaped jack plate.
An Allparts P neck with Birchwood Tru Oil.
Aero type 1, J pickups (my favorite Js
TI flats. Volume, Blend, Tone (passive)
This is my "surf Jazz Bass". Very beautiful and sounds great! Around 8lbs 12oz.
I might add an aftermarket Fender decal to the headstock later on but really, whether the headstock says, Precision or Jazz Bass, it's inaccurate since Fender never made a bass like this one.
Thanks for looking, TBers! Just got this long over due project done 10-31-'13. Three years sitting in a box.
