HI all. I just wanted to find other people who have put together basses out of parts (excluding warmoth) and who like them. Got a neck for 64 bucks and a mighty mite body for 39 bucks (maple body). Has "new old stock" 70's P pickup (removeable covers) wound by seymour duncan when he worked for MM at "E-b*Y.com". (Lucky ME) The PU is killer! I see threads on people wanting to be "cost conscience" and never look to the parts bin basses. In my opinion these are every bit as good as a Mex Fender P. You could even put some killer preamps in these. Heck i know it's not real original to go this route, but i got a good deal on these parts and it plays fine. If any of you have any Franken-clones show some pics or tell us about it. Cool? Later.
