    Here is my first Warmoth project, consisting in a Dinky J (4strings) with alder body, maple neck and pao fero fingerboard.
    Pick ups are Nordstrand ones, and the preamp is the same than JPbasses.
    JP has built this project for me, and I was really happy to work with him.

    I haven t tried it yet, but the fingerboard seems to be really good.
    No matter with warmoth wood quality.

    ACK...

    I'm really interesting in a Pao Ferro fingerboard for my own custom venture... so I'm really interesting in hearing any input you may have. I'm dying to know what you think.
     
  5. McHack, I have pau ferro on my warmoth deluxe fiver and I love it as a fingerbaord. Lookswise it has a nice stripy grainy thing goin on, but without being really busy looking like a fancier wood. The sweet tan/brown color really is amazing.
     
  6. Pau ferro is great. my '97 MIA Jazz V has it. nice and warm but still snappy enough for slap (not that i do that much more anyway). The Warmoth P/MM 5'er i made had a Pau Ferro fretboard and a Birdseye maple neck.. Good stuff..

    Looks great - say what you will about exotic woods, you can't go wrong with black!

    I like your headstock decoration, too. Very classy!

    Nice job, JP!

    Very nice - I especially like the headstock inlay! :D

    One day I've like to have a Dinky Jazz made ala Geddy's red w/ bound maple board (much like Nino-Brown's). I love my fives, but I've come to realize a nice four-string should be part of every player's toolbox.

    I can t stop playing my Jazzbass!!!
    It s a really cool bass, wich sounds incredible in my FAFNER.
    No surprise from warmoth: great wood quality, great finish, once again.
    The big surprise came from Nordstrand pick ups, and the preamp wich is Powerfull and well define.
    personnally, I never heard a jazzbass like this.The tonality gives me a lot of varietys of sound, from vintage Jaco sound, to modern sounding.

    The bright switch is privilege for slap sounding.My FAFNER love this preamp.

    THANKS again JP for your help and your great work.
    It sounds much better than I could dream. :bassist:
