    Very nice looking except for the Pearl p/g.

    I would put either a mint green or tortoise.
     
  5. That's alright. It would be better in blue, though!:bassist:

    Yeah, I really want a bass with a quilt top in transparent blue. So yummy:cool:

    That is definitely one sweeeeet looking Jazz! I just lucked into picking up Mike Dimin's MTD Heir, which is not terribly dissimilar in style. The FedEx guy should be visiting me on Friday... I can hardly wait...

    :D

    I really, REALLY like the pearl. It matches the inlays. Also the nice thing about pickguards is that the can be changed reletively painlessly.

    That is a VERY sweet looking bass. I'm real impressed with the quality of the Jazz neck that I recently bought from Warmoth. It's a birdsye neck with the ziricote board that I'm having done up as a fretless.

    But I'm also really preturbed with Warmoth. I had selected a neck from their "Thift Shop" but was told that it was already sold. So I went with my second choice. I then went back to the site and found that the one that I really wanted was still available. This did not make me happy at all. I was going to call and let them know but just forgot about it. This was not cool. :mad:

    Major M,

    That's a nice Warmoth. I particularly like the quilted top, block inlays, and the white pearloid pickguard.

    The guy who own s the bass is a very lucky guy, the quilt is nice too, some times warmoth dosent have the nicest tops but this one is a looker.

    It's very subtle. It's a very light green & gives the p/g a "vintage" look.

    Dont the sadowsky 5 string necks have something very special about them, i have found them to be the most comfortable 5 string neck. I am counting down the weeks till i join the club.
