Man Dark.. Im longing for my first DH project, and youre starting your 324th this month!
I was thinking something along the lines of a Mike Watt inspired build.
Slap another pickup by the bridge!
seriously. 3 humbuckers would be insane, like the 3 hum sg guitars. Please put a hipshot supertone 3 point bridge on it. alpine white is sick. I'm also all about brown basses...
It's funny, because as soon as I put the 2nd pickup on, my mind said "you can fit a 3rd EBO pickup on there ... so maybe I'll do that !
I checked out the Supertone - really cool.... not cheap though, that's for sure. I might have to sell something (maybe the "Poor Mans 57" or something) to fund a 3rd pickup and the Supertone bridge.
Gotta keep busy !
If you think I have a lot of BASS projects....Heck, you should see all the GUITARS I'm working on currently !!!
What're you thinking of doing Jordan?
How's the neck? I've played some that really suck.
theres a chip in the paint , that leaves you two options relic or repaint
i am just trying to push you over the edge
Also, is the bass real wood? I've really wondered.
I'm assuming that you mean "solid" wood, not "real" wood. Even plywood instruments are made of "real" wood.
Yes - it is mahogany.
By real I meant solid, not plywood with wood grain esque laminate.
Yup - that's what I figured.
It's solid mahogany.
Sweet! I really like white on these or maybe I could see you doing this darker (cherry?) wood finish - and relic it or maybe leave it out in the sun so the wood looks very dry and old...but something more transparent (depending on the grain of course) - almost like a real thin stain/whitewash coat.
Maybe this is way out there, but anyone ever consider a bass/guitar doubleneck using an SG body?
Like Mike Rutherford did with a Rick 620 and a 4001.
It'd be a worthy use of a $50 bass and a $40 guitar I think (if only I could find deals like that).
Been busy on other projects, so this one is on the backburner for a few.
Chop and splice !!!
