    I was just wondering if anyone was rocking a bound w/ dot neck?

    I think that'd look pretty classy and a nice timeless cross between trad dots and bound / blocks....and just enough out of the ordinary...

    Anyone got pics?

    Thanks! When I ordered it the guys seemed a bit worried it would look odd without binding on the body.

    I like it better w/out binding!

    Edit- Body Binding that is; the bound neck looks awesome on that instrument!

    I miss my ASAT!:crying:

    Wow guys, these are truly beautiful basses...I am honestly thinking this is my new fave. I love pearloid blocks, but for this new J I am designing, I think bound/dot is going to be it... man, those huge dots on that ASAT: KILLING ME.

    My 1982 Jazz has dots and binding, not the best picture here though.

    Yeah, it's an MIJ ICB500. Unfortunately, not mine, though. I have a '90s MIK 300, which also has dots and binding, but in cream instead of pearl.

    Very nice...seriously beautiful. I love cream binding. I think that's how I'm ordering my neck, for sure.
