    I really don't know if I want to sell this one, yet. Keep an eye open for my website with basses Iv'e built and/or building. Thats a low rez pic too. you should see it in person.

    I was thinking black hardware and sadowsky electronics.

    any thoughts guys?
     
  6. Mmmm, sounds delicious. What kind of pickups?

    If I use the sadowsky pre amp, sadowsky pups.

    If I don't it will be Bart pups and an Aguilar OBP-3.

    Either way, should sound great. I could go either way. I think I'll let Major Metal decide. I actually almost built this for him anyway, so what the heck.

    Oh, and black hardware will look SWEET on that bass, I daresay.

    I know! I dig the geddy neck on yours.
     
  13. I am going to stick with what I said for jj's bass. I think gold hardware looks great on those trans green finishes.

    I really like the OBP-3 I installed in my Dingwall. For a Jazz though, a Sadowsky pre with the VTC or a J-retro might be a nice too.

    Beautiful finish, by the way!
