    I decided to put a bunch of parts together that I had laying around.
    This is what I came up with.

    I have a Fender Jazz 5 string that I'm having a hard time getting use to so I figured a BEAD Bass might make the transition a bit easier.

    Still need to do a bit more body work.

    DSC00035.

    I picked up a Kahler Hybrid 7440 bridge a few weeks back and now it's going to get used.

    I've thought of doing a BEAD build so I could have the bottom end of the B with the feel of a 4 string.

    I figure that when I am playing bottom-end-thunder bass line I don't tend to need the G anyhow.
