    Hi everybody! I just finished a custom Warmoth build for my client. It's an Alder body instrument, with Wenge/Wenge neck (slim profile with graphite rods), Lindy Fralin single coils, J-Retro pre and Babicz bridge. It turned out so well that can easily compete with my high dollar boutique basses. To be true it sounds even better than most of them. I LOVE Wenge! Amazing playability and that raw sound! And those Fralins, mmmm!!! :)

    That may be one of the nicest five string J type basses I've ever see! And the action looks slammed, just how I likey.

    Thanks! Besides the look it really plays well! Warmoth does excellent stuff. That particular Warmoth Deluxe 5 plays much better than any 5-string Fender I ever tried. :) And it has 19mm string spacing!!! :)

    Sweet, how's the weight on the all Wenge neck like? Also I thought Warmoth only did steel reinforcement rods?

    Wenge neck with the graphite rods is much lighter than the previous necks with the extra metal bars. Yes, they do offer graphite rods (USD 60) now. There's no neck dive at all although the body was appr. 4lbs. So the bass is medium weight.

    I have a Wenge/ebony neck from Warmoth. Steel rods and no neck dive. Its a beauty.
