So i've been lurking around TB for a little while and after some inspiration from reading a few threads, I've just built my first bass! well... really, I just bought a bunch of parts that i wanted in a bass and put it all together, and i must say i am very pleased with the way it turned out. Initially i thought it would be cool to build a Shell pink Jazz Bass because you don't really see many of them out there (at least i haven't, and in my opinion, i actually think it's an awesome color!) but the playability and the sound it outputs have really exceeded my expectations! I can't wait to show her off at my next gig! here's a link to pics of the bass from start to finish... https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10101486710866676.1073741826.37519131&type=1&l=d96236d0cc I Just wanted to see what you guys think of it. some of my friends (who are non musicians) just say, "hey that's cool" or whatever, but i want to show it off to real bassists. I initially thought of going with a 70's maple neck/fretboard with pearl block inlays with pearloid pickguard but at the time, the rosewood neck and white guard were available and affordable. eventually i'll get there. So, what do you think? if it was your build, what would you do differently? How would you make it your own? Do you already have a shell pink bass? Lets see them! and oh! what would you name it???
