9mmMike, would you mind sharing some of your pictures?
I've always found John's posts in these forums to be extremely helpful--he clearly knows his stuff.
A few years back I had a question about a problem I was having installing Gotoh Res-o-lites in my Precision. I contacted John and he quickly gave me the information I needed.
Anyone in the market for a custom bass should check out this website.
I love his work. The thing that impresses me the most about it though, is the grain matching he does. That's just amazing attention to detail.
No pics .......for sharing...... yet but I can tell you it is a '71 and will have a parchment guard......and it is not a burst finish. Ha!
It is literally going together right now so it will not be long before it will be home.
Here we go. Pre-ship picture from the man himself. You can almost smell the paint.
Sweet! Is that mint green and TI flats?
Nice color combo. Looks great.
It is John's homemade parchment. It will darken as it ages. Those are TI's and the tiny bits (tugbar, pots, strap buttons,knobs, bridge, etc.
) are early 70's.
Looks great ...
Jade pearl metallic? Really stunning work by a master. Congrats, and I bet you can't wait to play it!
I would guess it's aged Ice Blue metallic. I had a guitar done in this color and the pre-aged clearcoat looked like this:
But my aged nitro clearcoat ended up here:
And was roughly based on a couple original Fenders like this one:
Firemist Silver (aged) - maybe one of several names Fender gave this color. Has a slight green/blue tint to it that (I think) will get more green as it ages.
John says "it plays great". I cannot wait to get my mitts on it!
Two pics of my latest JKallas creation. I will try to get some full sun shots next.
Absolutely beautiful, love that color.
This should be arriving later today. The waiting is the hardest part.
With matching headstock.
Thanks! Yeah, I got one eye on this thread and another watching for the FedEx truck.
Good golly Miss Molly! That Jazz is fantastic. John is just so "the man"!
How many amazing basses have hung in that stand and posed in front of that wall, I wonder!
