    I was thinking something along the lines of a Mike Watt inspired build.

    Slap another pickup by the bridge!
     
  3. 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.

  7. How's the neck? I've played some that really suck.
     
  8. theres a chip in the paint , that leaves you two options relic or repaint :)



    i am just trying to push you over the edge :p
     
  9. 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.


    :D
     
  11. 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).
