    That is one gorgeous bass! (Severe GAS and jealousy pangs
    combined)! :hyper:
     
  5. Nino, I noticed on your site you're using the contoured neck heel option on warmoth bodies-
    are you using a standard neckplate + bolts or threaded inserts,bolts+ collars?

    any chance of a pic of the contoured heel?
    thanks.

    You really dont see many bound block necks on modern Jazz bodies without pickgaurds, but it looks wicked! I really like the way the headstock looks on the bass. I think the people who didnt like it before will change their minds once they see it on a finished bass.

    Sweet job man!

    How much longer till we see a Sherewood Green 5 string in a thread like this?

    J/K Take your time getting everything together when you get all the stuff you need. ;)


    Peace
    Nick

  13. Nice! :cool:

    How much does it weigh? :bag:
     
  14. Nino, you always amaze me with these basses. I think if I ever get the money I'm going to have to get you to make me a killer 5.

    Nino -

    Great job on this one, I like the headstock all put together, too. What do you think of the contoured heel joint? I think it's one of our most underrated options.
     
  16. the headstock is reminiscent of a bongo. i like it.

    The headstock reminds me of and A Bass.

    Nice!

    I like the heel. Make it more confortable to play in the higher register.

    BTW Brian, I'd really like to build a 5 string twin of this bass.
