    a friend of mine (in a fairly well known band) just received his Fender Jazz doubleneck from the custom shop.

    i'll be meeting him for coffee tomorrow morning. i'll be there with my camera and tripod!!!!

    sunburst, maple boards/block inlays and TELE headstocks. both necks are fretted 4's with a nut cut for BEAD and another cut for EADG.

    !!!!

    should be interesting.

    Wouldn't a 5'er do the job? :confused: I'd love to see the pix.

    one would think, yes.

    but, this player doesn't like 5 string basses.

    to each his own.

    more power to him for landing a jazz doubleneck WHATEVER the config!

    i can't wait either.

    I always liked this Azola.

    I think a doubleneck with BEAD and EADG is a little silly (or, at least, too heavy for the benefit). But, more power to him for getting what he wanted--I'm sure it'll look killer, and play nice, too!

    Heh...did he get it relic'd so it'd look like a vintage doubleneck? :D

    :bassist:

    yowEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!

    now there's a doubleneck config I'D go for.

    especially knowing Steve A's build quality!!!

    he makes great stuff.

    me wet pants with that pic.

  6. Hmm, I just happen to have a pair of matching necks laying around here. Until now, I hadn't thought of a doubleneck.

    :confused: :D

    Warmoth makes a P/strat body. Maybe they would make one bass/bass?

    Strikes me as a bit silly to have the fretboard down that far if the cutaway only goes down to the, what, 21st fret position?

    Yes, and no. While it would be difficult to fret something down there with the cutaway (not to mention that you're going to have to reach past the top neck, etc), the extended fretboard could have been designed that way to be used as a ramp, ala Gary Willis.
