    I've been tempted to do a Lefty neck, but was concerned about E string length going all the way to the end of the neck. Do normal strings make the reach or do you have to go with longer strings????

    Normal, typically meaning 'long scale' 34". No special strings required.
    Also has hipshot bridge and fully shielded.
    A project bass makes it nice to have a bridge where the strings slip out the back.

    This bass sounds great. :bassist: It plays pretty well, too, although I'm still working on the set-up.

    Just a thought, and one I may have to consider. I saw a pic around here of a custom pickguard/control 'all in one' that would forgive the misalignment of the two covers. Made by Jeannie I believe.

    I've posted this before, but I guess it really belongs on this thread:

    - P body from Scott Hembry guitars, modeled after one of Billy Sheehan's basses
    - Fender MIM J neck
    - EBO pickup
    - unknown P pickup (a '62 reissue Fender pickup on the way though)
    - Hipshot tuners

    Highway 1 Nitro USA Fender body
    Novak Split J's
    Rothstein V/B/T with V-cap.
    Hipshot Ultralites Y in black
    Hipshot A style bridge in black. I went back and forth on wether to get aluminum or brass with string through. I opted for the aluminum top mount only. Since this thing is going to be so light and decided not to counter act that. I can always add string through later.
    I ordered two pickguards. Tortoise and Vintage Pearl, We'll see which looks better.
    Neck is Status Graphite
    Jazz width
    Side LED's are red
    Neck is tinted red
    Maple/Phenolic Fingerboard

    Well, keep us posted on yours when it comes in!!

    I'll post a picture of mine so far when I have access to a camera, but here's the specs:

    Black precision body, unknown brand
    Electra jazz neck, rosewood with pearl block and binding
    Stingray copy pickup at the bridge, unknown brand
    Dimarzio precision pickup in the standard position
    "The brick" double-jazz pickup at the neck, unknown brand
    series/parallel/single switches for each pickup as well as individual volume knobs

    I haven't made the pickguard yet and I don't have a bridge, otherwise it's pretty much done.

    Nah, it's a SX pickguard, so that's why is doesn't align. If I got a standard Jazz guard it would line up fine.
