I want to build a jazz bass custom with a MM pickup in it. I think I want one of the SD Basslines pickups in it, but as far as the bridge (bad-ass II?), pre-amp (aguilar OBP-3?), and the woods for the body and neck (ash, maple, mahogany?), I'm lost. I want a Stringray-esque tone, punchy with a killer mid range, but still with defined lows and highs that sparkle, but it doesn't have to match the tone at all, otherwise I'd just pick up a Stingray. I plan to get the body off of Warmoth with the routing done, but I'm not against gutting a jazz bass and doing it myself. I have ideas, but I'm not really sure what my options are and I don't want to spend a ton of money on things that don't sound well together, any recommendations? Also how much paint should I need to do the body and the headstock, and where's a good place (other than reranch) to get paint? I'm looking for metallic green.
