  1. Anyone got pix they would like to post?

    I've seen the Lakland Hollowbody but I was hoping to see some jazz basses. I'm going to do a refinish job and I need inspiration!

    I'll start with one I grabbed from a google search

    Yeah, its a Valenti, but I think the bridge is a hipshot.

    Something tells me that there are p/g colors other than white that would look 1000x sexier on this color.
     
  7. Is it just me

    or is the Jazz Bass

    the embodiment of coolness

    in a form-follows-function sort of way?
     
  8. OMG totally, dude.

    I was wondering about a diff pickguard too, but what I don't know. Black? maybe. Tort, hmm. Pearloid, too rich?

    I inqured at Jeannie custom pickguards about a one piece guard and control plate like on the 80's Fender customs. That could be cool.

    Black looks great on inca silver. I forgot where I saw it, but it killed.

    It's a Gotoh Quick Release Bridge.
     
  11. ooh that's very pretty. I like black pg but the project is going to have Bartos and the black guards and the pups without polepeices sometimes look a little undefined. the smoked seems to alleviate that somewhat.

    That's a beautiful bass Nino, you do amazing work.
