Hi! Im a norwegian guy thats been lurking theese forums for a while to get ideas and inspiration for a new bass guitar.
I bought a black korina 4 string Jazz bass body, schaller 4 string bridge, a pickguard and a control plate from warmoth and it looks great. After i mockuped how it would looked i started wondering. What kind of neck and pickups should i use?
I've read a lot of good things about warmoth and seen lots of cool basses with wenge necks. Also people seem to dig how the wenge feels. But after seeing my bass next to my crappy morgan fretless neck (looked great together but dont fit) im thinking maybe maple/rosewood or maple/maple.
Should i go warmoth? Or maybe allparts? Getting a fender used neck is also possible but hard in norway.
I also wonder what kind of pickups would be the best choice. I play bluesy metal with one band, punk with another and play pop,rock,reggae and whatever else at home. The pickups should be able to at least do blues/metal good.
Here's a picture of the mockup: https://www.dropbox.com/s/zq5ix89kjh...2012.40.16.jpg
Im gonna tru oil it!
Thanks for all ideas and input!
