    More details! I checked out the website, but couldn't read most of what was on there.:) Where can you find these? Are they reasonably priced?
  11. I would be surprised, ash grain is much more deeper and the veins are usually larger.

    Congrats on the bass btw.
  12. +1 It looks beautiful though. The only other maple grain I've seen that looks as nice is on the Celinder necks.

    Wow, didn't expect so many replies! Thank you so much!

    Yeah, it's a really good, light and well balanced Jazz Bass.

    The neck pocket is tight, fret job, inlays and binding really well done, fretboard in a beautiful dark Brazilian rosewood and the neck (maple reinforced with carbon) is a bit fatter than most Fender Js I've played. But it's fast and very comfortable to my left hand.

    Pickups are Fender Originals. They sound very good and warm but I'm considering replace them for a pair of Nordies. I'll install a J-Retro first.

    I know Zaganin for a few years, actually I already own one of his basses (BLB Model) but I wanted a JB for a long time.

    This one was just lying around at a local store for a year or more so I bought it!

    It cost me like U$1200,00

    I like black already, but that is one of the classiest looking black beauties ever.
