    Wow, that natural one is a beauty! I really like that look a lot. I bet that pickup configurateion would be great! Really thick sounds I would think. Lotsa bottom!

    One change, I would add a bridge cover to it, maybe put in a j-retro or similar pre-amp.

    :bassist:

    Hm... would a bridge cover completely cover the musicman-esque humbucker?

    This got me thinking what if the humbucker was right next to the neck.

    Hmm, I dunno if a bridge cover could be put on that... Now that I look at it, the bridge is a lot closer to the "butt" of the instrument than it is on a standard jazz... I don't know if there will be enough space to mount the cover on there.... hmm...
