Greetings once again and welcome to the second half of my "not new enough for an 'NBD-post' so I'm calling it an 'unveiling'"! Like my previous post, it'll be pics first, reporting second and then story-time. Oh, and for anyone who wants to remind me that it's spelled "P-R-O-J-E-C-T", I've intentionally named it so as a reference to two different literary sources. What I'm unveiling today is the culmination of many months of researching, tracking down, purchasing and assembling various parts into a bass I am quite proud of. But first, pics; Here's a list of the parts I've assembled and what I've subjected some of them to. Updated parts are in BOLD-type; Mighty Mite BlueBurst Jazz body. I had it routed into a P/J configuration using as a guide a Fender Blacktop Jazz pickguard (+black screws). Originally, it was black/white/black. That blue/purple scarab effect along the edge comes from a trick I developed using a simple Sharpie permanent marker, same as I did to my Blacktop Jazz bass. Black Allparts Control Plate (+Fender Jazz Knobs). Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar neck (love the painted headstock+rosewood+blocks!). Fender Aerodyne neck (one of my favorites!). Fender "F-Style" neck plate. Seymour Duncan SPB-3 Quarter Pounder pickup. MIJ Precision pickup. Fender Super 55's Split-Coil Jazz pickup. Stellartone Tonestyler Bass TEN Replaced the whole harness with an Elek-Trix circuit (see below) Black Hipshot aluminum bridge and Ultralite tuners. Fender American Standard Bridge Hipshot Drop-D tuner. (BT10 for Fender Japan necks) Ernie Ball Cobalt Strings (45 to 100). Ernie Ball Cobalt FLATWOUNDS (.45-.100) Black Planet Waves Elliptical End Pin strap buttons. Black vintage style string retainer. Once I had all the parts, I assembled what I could on my own. Then I handed it off to the tech at my local Guitar Center who did the routing, wiring and installed the last of the pieces I didn't trust myself to get right. As always, he did a great job! Speaking of electronics, I love P/J configurations, but what makes this stand apart from the others I own is the wiring. I decided I wanted to try out a Volume/Blend/Tone(styler) config. So far, it, along with my choice of pickups and strings, have yielded some interesting results. But in the long run, I got what I wanted; a sound that's "beefy" with the extra "bite" from the extra bridge pickup. As an extra, unforeseen bonus, the whole package weighs in at exactly eight pounds. Projekt Blue I My first attempt at a parts-bass was using a Mighty Mite Precision body (also in BlueBurst) with the neck harvested from a Squier Deluxe Jazz IV Active. The Quarter Pounders and Tonestyler were also part of the project. Unfortunately, I didn't care much for the sound nor the too-flat neck radius. To put it simply, it was too monochromatic for my tastes. So, I disassembled it, sold off what I didn't need and used the money towards the next project. That's all for now. I'll report more as I get more and more familiarized with this creation o' mine.
