Does anyone do this? Any pictures would be great.
Just get a Squier VM Fretless J body and put your favorite J neck on it.
Isn’t it awesome when you get the answer to all your questions in one commanding, yet dismissive, statement?
Welcome to TalkBass!
Not sure what the deal is with all the walnut(?) screw-hole dowels on the alder body...would look much better if they used the same color wood...looks kind of crazy to me...
Lordy me! My bass caught the chicken pox!
Yeah that's not a good look...
G&L JB2. The body is not the same shape and it does not have thumb rest, but they are cheap and easy to install
Would be cool IMO if there were more dowels scattered randomly across the top. As is, I like it not so much.
No pickguard is the best.
Hello @Stan_da_man! Yes, I do this to most instruments I've owned over the years, especially Jazz basses. I hate pickguards. The tug bar however, I do a little differently. I use it as an actual thumbrest (fingerstyle player here) & it can be an official Fender plastic rest or a piece of wood that I fashion, depending on the instrument. I've used screws & I've used the "wedge" technique if I span the space between the P/U's.
looks like my back (birthmarks...)
I like that only people who know jazz basses will understand all the plugs .
+ screwing into a walnut end grain kinda makes sense .
There’s also this one, non-factory location and a little more practical...
That just made my mind hurt. even if it's logical. Imagine the same bass with a thumbrest that went from the neck to the bridge. (Yeah... someone will find a pic)
No, sorry. But if you look at the picture of the 62ish looking (fretless?) Jazz @eastcoasteddie posted (#14), you'll get the idea.
There have been times when I've wanted to run a thumb rest from the front of the bride P/U to the back edge of the fretboard, but I never have.
Someone did... (scroll up^^)
I’ve never quite understood the rationale behind a thumb rest on a Jazz because you already have two built in ones with the two pickups. And yes ,I do have several Jazz basses. But, too each there own. The one with the big walnut plugs looks bizarre. I would add a whole bunch more randomly to get into Buddy Guy territory.
