    Number 156 has made it's way to me. I was told that it is the same bass that is shown in the artist photos as owned by Matt Winter. He sold it to my seller. Used last weekend for two shows, really an awesome instrument. Fit and finish is as good as it gets. Balance is superb on my shoulder. I didn't know how I would feel about the Big Single pickups, but I found them to sound really good. They remind me of P-90's, and no, they don't sound exactly like a traditional jazz bass pickup, but they don't sound anything like a humbucker, either. I like them and found this bass to be exactly what I was looking for - something a little bit different that didn't stray too far from the traditional jazz bass formula. This one is a keeper and will be with me for a long time.

    That sounds like a great story. What's the plan?

    A rear cavity rout to match the VJ modern, hoping to loose about 1/2 pound..... May have a p pickup installed in the neck position as well while it is there. Would value people's thoughts on the pick up for sure!

    Ok...a few newbie questions...

    I happened to own a VJ5 modern w Dual Coils for a short time but sold it to get funds for a different bass

    I miss her A LOT!!!!

    So, I'm considering a build...probably alder/RW with blocks and binding, trans white with tort or black pearl pg and a 2 band pre

    What are the differences between the Big Singles, Big Splits and Fat Stacks...is it possible to get close to a P/J sound by using any combo of these or would it be best to rout for a P pickup in the neck position???

    Big Splits are awesome in the bridge position. But if you want that P sound, get a P in the sweet spot. P and Big Split work great together.
