I'm already big in tons of countries you've never heard of.
Yeah, but don't most of them end in 'stan?
Hey dannster, I really like that bass!
Thanks Props! It's one of those that came together and met or exceeded all my expectations! It is the nicest bass I've had... ever.
81 Squier Precision.
Seymour Duncan Quarter Pounders SJB-3n, SPB-3, SJB-3b
Schaller bridge and tuning machines
Hipshot E tuning machine
Red tort pickguard
Roller string tree
3 individual on/off switches (one per pickup)
Unknown P bass body (I think it's a J.B. player), old set of active EMG pups, Gotoh tuners, brass nut, 3 different brands of strings (LOL), some unknown "vintage" style P bass bridge, standard black/white/black 3 ply pickguard, & an old Boogie Bodies P bass neck. I tried to show the bird's eye maple that this neck is made out of, it's a really great playing neck. Recently refretted w/ jumbos. There is no logo or serial number on the neck anywhere, but I was told that Boogie bodies was the people who now own Warmouth? Any info would help, thanks. Matt
Interesting - a P Bass with blocks. That's not something you see every day.
Thats gorgeous danster, I'm envious, I have the same tint job on my Status Stingray, only the body is appleburst. Mine weighs just a bit more than yours... 9.7lbs
Hey Im thinkin of doing some kind of custom job in the future and am wondering for those of you who have warmoth 4 string neck how do they feel?
They are quite chunky even with a 1.5" nut width. If you have smaller hands that is something to consider but quality sound and everything else-wise they are top notch!
Thank You Sir! I love the subtlety of the tint. I'm sure under stage lights it's going to pop out quite nicely.
That looks sweet. Simple and tasty.
Also; FINALLY! An inexpensive replacement neck with block inlays and 21 frets.
You've gotta tell me how you like it! How is the action and fretwork? Any weird warping, or anything funny going on?
I see on their eBay listings that the heel extends to the 21st fret, rather than a fretboard overhang. You had to route the neck pocket deeper, right?
I love this neck...The action is very low and the fretwork is excellent. No sharp edges. I really like the fact that it has the extra fret, it gives you more playing options. You don't have to do any routing, just bolt it on...
My latest featherweight "Rat Rod" (6lbs 4oz)
Fender '62 RI parts:, neck, pickguard, control plate, bridge.
Body: Paulownia, finish is one coat 3# orange shellack.
Tuners: Hipshot U/L
Pickup: Bartolini 9J
Strings: Labella Nylon Tapes
Other sundry parts: Allparts
I want to do a Frankenbuild soon, but it probably won't be for a while. Regardless, I've got a parts list drafted:
Body: Warmoth swamp ash, transparent blue, white pickguard
Pickups: Bartolini 9J
Neck: Fender 62 RI Jazz bass neck, rosewood
Badass II bridge, Schaller tuners, chrome hardware
I want a J that will be as different tonally than my current one, so it's either this build or I buy a Stingray, either way I want 3 basses.
here is my Frankenbass
parts bass with a modulus neck. currently setup as BEAD.
with a rosewood fingerboard
To me there is nothing better in life than playing a fine frankensteined bass ...
Ric5: They all LOOK awesome. But how can you play anything with string spacing that tight?
I can't handle a Stingray 5 because it's too narrow. I couldn't even imagine trying to play one of your basses.
