Just wanted to share the fruits of 2 months showering in sawdust. It's my first attempt at making a bass (or any form of woodwork for that matter) and I was inspired after lurking around this forum and seeing way too many custom basses that i could not afford. so i took the easy way out. i retired my washburn xb600 and recycled the neck for my project since its my first time and i didn't have the tools or confidence to attempt a neck from scratch. here are the specs Body : Figured African mahogany with quilted maple top Neck : Maple FB: Rosewood (i think) Bridge: Slim Tail 6 from Custom Shop Parts Pickups: EMG 45 Js (a pair) EQ: EMG BQS (trb, bass and sweepable mids with 18v) since it was my first time, the body shape was based on one of the best looking basses around in my opinion, the Plume from JP (many many many thanks for that design JP, hope you don't mind me borrowing it for my little project). Thanks to all on the forum for their help!
