Following is a picture of a bass Mike Kinal of Vancouver, BC is building for me. I was going to wait until she was finished but... She has a Swamp Ash body, Figured Maple neck and fingerboard. Hipshot bridge and tuners, Bartolini Jazz pick-ups with three-band preamp and ebony THG knobs will complete the package. I struggled with how to finish her (and drove Mike a little nuts in the process) finally deciding on Transparent Blue with a matching headstock. I always liked the a Fender Jazz Bass in Lake Placid Blue with matching headstock and believe the bass Mike is building for me is a 'modern' take on that instrument.
