Well we're almost done with my Hollow Body Bass VI(http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f8/watterson-guitars-hollowbody-bass-vi-build-1046200/) so we decided to start on another bass build for myself One day I was thinking to myself, "hmm I really wish I had a bass that could nail the classic P bass tone but have the versatility of a J pickup in the bridge and a EB-0 Mudbucker in the neck." Well after further thinking I remembered that Curtis Novak makes EB-0 replacement pickups but knowing that EB-0 are very high output pickups I wanted to be able to have the output of the set matched to where none of them were way louder than the others so there wouldn't be volume spikes, so I decided to contact him with this crazy idea. He loved it! After talking a while though he suggested going with the BS-DS pickup since it's easier to wire to custom specs and blends better with other pickups which I'm glad because I like the look of it better than the EB-0! So I am having the pickups wound to be similar to my bass hero's, the P will be wound to sound like Roger Waters tone(think live at Pompeii), and the J will be wound to cop a Jaco tone, and the BS-DS will be nice and bassy The controls will be: Master volume, master tone, 5 way strat pickup selector, and a Rothstein passive midrange boost/cut(I used this on another bass and can't live without it now) but may swap the regular tone for Fender TBX to make the ultimate passive bass. I've always loved the P-bass body but being that we like to keep things somewhat original, I made a little design mod to it I love the look of the 70's Moca P basses so I'm going with a Moca type stain for the color along with a black pickguard. I went with Hipshot hardware. I'm using the Supertone 2 point bridge and the HB-1 Tuners with a 3 string string retainer in chrome I need to buy a second neck because the only one I have has a maple fingerboard and I'm more keen on rosewood. Features: Body Wood: Poplar Neck: Maple on Maple Nut: Brass Color: Moca Stain Pickups: Curtis Novak BS-DS, Curtis Novak P, and Curtis Novak J Electronics: Master Volume, Master Tone(possible Fender TBX), 5-way Pickup Selector, Rothstein Passive Midrange Boost/Cut Pickguard: Black Hardware: Hipshot Supertone 2 point, HB-1 tuners, and a 3 string string retainer You can see where I was trying to get the stain to my liking.
