    Wow, I think I just messed my pants...
     
  7. Very nice!! I'll bet the low B is massive!

    Out of curiosity, why did you put the PJ pickups in soap bars?
     
  8. Actually its tuned E to C : )

    I went with soap bars because i was originaly going to go with Q tuner pups, then DC's, then settled on pjs. Really its just incase if feel like switching the pups, no additional routing has to be done.

  11. yea, now i just need him to build me one i wouldnt be scared to bring in public.

    Thats's a nice looking bass-killer neck and fretboard!!!!!!! What does it weigh and what was the cost? Do you have any sound clips available?


    A Groove is a Terrible Thing to Waste! :cool:
     
  15. That is an amazing bass guitar. What does something like that one go for? I love the back of the neck, that is sick.:eek:

    First off, you got to go all THROUGH the process, not "threw".

    AMAZING bass! It's odd but I love it!
     
  17. I've never been a big fan of single-cutaway basses.Most of'em look like a hump-back whale.Scratch that for this one.AWESOME!!!Fanned frets??Get outta here!!Lovem'!
     
  18. to put all the questions in one post

    It weighs...well quite a bit, Bubinga and wenge is no fun, id say around 12 lbds

    as far as cost. A lot less then you would think, but I supplied the body template, top woods, tuners, and other random stuff, in addition to the guy has been doing setup/repair work for me since i started playing. PM me if you want more details.Best thing, call him up and have it quoted out!


    Ill try to get some sound clips up of it. My playing level needs to raise to the bar of this bass though!
     
  19. Woah. Nice bass! I'm a little jealous:D
