    Just finished this Warmoth Jazz build...
    4.5 lb alder showcase body...surf green
    Maple/maple thin-profile showcase neck...vintage tint satin
    DiMarzio Type J pickups with John East Retro J pre
    BadAss II bridge
    Bone nut, Setup & PLEK by Phil Jacoby of Philtone Guitars in Baltimore.

    It plays very clean & snappy. Very light weight.

    Bitchin'.

    Beautiful, and much nicer than mine. What color is the pickguard and where did it come from?

    More tone than you can shake a cat at, without hittin' someone.
    That's for sure.

    Thanks for rhe love guys...

    The pickguard is from Warmoth.
    They call it Parchment...it's off-white, slightly.
    I ordered a W/B/W pickguard, so I'd say that's it.

    Love the vintage tint neck. Makes the body color pop.

    Totally gorgeous, and I really like the use of the double knobs and small switches to keep it relatively simple-looking. My girlfriend is asking me here about the details, especially if it's not too crass, what the total cost came out to be and a little more detail about the neck you chose, unless it's a standard jazz size. Great bass!

    That came out great! You should put your name on the headstock and sell more creations. ;)
     
  17. I have the same bridge , pickups and preamp on a Fretless with tapewounds and it sounds amazing. Nice build.

    Vuk, I hope you can make it up this way again to hang sometime, and that you bring this bad boy with you! Keep us posted on the Forte progress as well!

  20. Very, very nice. Hey, did the Badass 2 bridge retrofit easily? I thought Warmoth only drilled for Badass 3?
