    Looks great, but with a parts project like this, it is all about how it plays, so you tell us how you did.

    Nice job. A lot of Mighty Mite necks play beautifully. Fun, isn't it, building a bass where there once was none? Which Basslines pu's did you use?

    I'd hit that with some guitar polish and shine it up real good. I think a vintage tint on the neck would look amazing, but the regular maple is still cool. You don't usually see maple with sunburst & tort, it's usually rosewood, which makes it even cooler.
     
  8. very nice, not 2 shabby. maple freboard's not my thing, but NICE JOB

    Its actuly my first maple neck to.It just seems everytime I wanted one,the bass it was on was too expensive.A logo would be nice but for some reason I dont want Fender on it.:smug:
    It plays great Ill find a place to put some clips on.I figured at 16 years old I did alright for seeing all these older guys making nice looking instroments on here.Thanks alot.Oh as for the bassline im not what they are but Ill check the boxes they came in.They were like $60 each

    Excellent job, man. I've wanted to build/assemble a parts bass for a long time, but I've never gotten around to it, because all the parts I seem to want add up to...'hell, I should just buy a damn bass'.

    Well the thing sounds great and feels really nice.Its my first Fender(ish) bass. The next question for you kind people is whether you think the bass would look ok with the bridge pup chrome cover i took off back on.I also put the thumb rest back on.

    Looks great! Yes, a custom logo would be the finishing touch.
