    I finally got the Jazz basses together and ready for NAMM next week.

    I had a tuff time taking photo's of the LPB for whatever reason, but I'm try and take better ones later.

    Chris did a wonderful job with the standard 3 pc neck's and the finish.

  2. Brian,

    I was just on the site earlier looking at the basses. I was thinking of how nice a burst 5'er with blocks would look. :cool: Beautiful stuff, man! I really like the look of those basses.

    Thanks Bernie, I've got a solid pearl White one as well thats a customer's ordered but I'm waiting on the gold knobs and then I'll take pics of it.

    They are all basses that Chris builds the 3 pc neck and body's for Instead of buying parts. They are assembled here at the The bass shop. I wanted the Jazz basses to be built with qualities no one else offer's so far in a Jazz bass.

    Take me with you :(.

    Those basses look great. The grain in the second one is beautiful, and I bet they all sound amazing too.

    They looks great though I would probably have done a white of faded white pickgaurd and white binding and inlays for the fiesta red. The LPB could go either way but Im pleasantly suprised by how nice that darker pigaurd goes with it since you dont see that often. Very nice.

    That sunburst one looks sweet without a doubt.

    Good luck!

    EDIT: One last thing. The headstocks look a little big if you ask me and a little too pointy. Of course, its your headstock not mine. They still look great. ;)

    Dont you plan on offering 6 and 7 string jazz basses?

    I think that would definetly set you apart.
