    OK, this is available as a complete project bass, or I'll part it out. Either way, I just need to divest myself of stuff.

    Body is a Fender Jazz "boner". I had an MM style pickguard (this also helps cover up some unconventional routing experiments...you will NOT be able to use this body without the pickguard) made, and a chrome cover added as well to complete the look.* Neck pocket was widened to accommodate a Carvin 5 string neck...

    ...which is a 5 string Carvin fretless neck with lines. Ebony fingerboard, with black tuners.

    *chrome cover was also needed to cover pickup rout which was originally routed for a double J type. [DEL]I instead ended up using Villex pickups...

    ...which are reverse P type (B/E closer to bridge, A/D/G closer to neck) style, which IMO helps balance the tone. These were a custom order, EMG 40 sized[/DEL].
    PICKUPS SOLD

    [DEL]Wired to a Bartolini preamp....

    ...which is the NTMB (V/B/T/M/B) setup with active/passive pull pot on volume and mid shift pull pot[/DEL]. PREAMP SOLD

    All anchored by the bridge...

    ...which is a Wilkinson, the older style with 3-way adjustment. Currently set at around 17mm spacing. Can go much wider or narrower. Carvin neck could almost certainly accommodate 18mm, but I would not think much wider than that.


    $100 for body with pickguard and bridge
    $100 for neck with tuners
    [DEL]$150 for pickups (these were over $300 new)[/DEL]
    [DEL]$100 for preamp[/DEL]


    Feel free to ask any questions.
