    Pete does amazing work. I had an early model of his a long time ago and it was really great.

    I went to his shop last year and played his personal 6 string with his own brand of pickups in it...they were awesome...nice to read that you are going with his pickups as well!

    Pickups were an interesting decision. Because I wanted 24 frets, 33" scale *AND* a decent slap zone, it was a challenge. I have never liked the sound of the two pickups being an inch apart like you see on many 24 fret basses and the 33" scale compounds the issue. I also was very emphatic on having the '60s jazz bridge position. (Scaled to 33" of course). I did not want the bridge pickup a 1/2" from the bridge like you see on some 24 fret instruments. Therefore, I decided on going with both pickups in a single musicman sized wooden shell. I primarily use the bridge pickup but with the 4 coils inside the housing, I'll be able to get some interesting coil combinations but will probably continue to use only the bridge pickup here...

    some updates with proposed control layouts. Pete likes the front mounted jack but I'm not sure yet...

    I do too but I'm thinking the jack pushes them into the playing area a little too much so I'm leaning towards a side jack.
     
  9. I see your point. A side jack will make it look cleaner. I like the Neutrik locking ones. They're not exactly inconspicuous but they work well :)

    I like the neutrik as well but discovered that they don't work with the planet waves spring loaded jacks.

    My vote would be for having the jack side mounted (not a huge fan of front mounted jacks, no idea why).

    And the controls all in a row looks great, IMHO.

    these are about a month old. It's much closer to completion but Pete's digicam broke so i haven't gotten the latest pix. It's coming along great. Specs are a bit different from the original though. :)

    The bass is looking great. The fingerboard is gorgeous! Pete sure does some nice work.
