    So for a hundred bucks or so I bought parts here and there and built myself a custom jazz (SX body and electronics with an Epiphone neck). I'm very surprised at how good the bass sounds, alot of thump or growl, and I'm overall very pleased :D


    No pics no bass so here it is:

    I'm probably gonna buy a new bridge to realign the strings with the pickups correctly. The neck doesn't fit exactly in the pocket (about a credit card's width from the bottom to the neck) but its not that big a problem.

    very nice :) I'm customizing my jazz bass as well-- Got a vintage jazz bass cover on the bottom, colored the F with a marker (lol) and got it a custom neck plate with a Tool image. I gotta get a camera ><

    Care to post a picture of the headstock? Does it have the "pointy" headstock some Epi P/J copies have?

    Cool, my first bass's headstock looked exactly like that. Even with the black and all. :)

    It was an Epiphone "Power bass", and was all black with a P/J pickup combo.

    I'm not sure which bass this one comes form, but its dated 1990 and is extremely comfortable. I'll upgrade the bridge, and maybe the pickups once I get bored of the sound, and its probably a bass i'll keep :)
