My Frog

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Santraginus, Nov 5, 2005.


  1. I recently finished my first Warmoth-Project.

    Think I'll call it "The Frog"...

    Specs:

    Swamp Ash Body, Greenburst
    Sadowsky Humcancelling J's (Passive, Vol/Vol/Tone)
    Gotoh Bridge
    Birdseye Maple Neck and Fretboard
    Schaller Tuners
    Bone Nut

    And: Yes, I did notice that the E and G strings are a little out of line with the P/Us. It does not affect the sound - but still, I am thinking about using a different bridge, giving larger string-spacing. Any suggestions?

    And what do you think about the looks?
    I don't have recording equipment, so I can't provide you with its sound... but just to let you know: It's so sweeeeet...

    Cheers
    Michael

    I love the finish. Green burst with maple neck, awesome.
    I'm not fond of Jazz shapes to start with.
    You could use an adjustable bridge such as a Gotoh roller to bring strings back in line with the PUs.
     
  3. Let me be the first to say... SHWING! :p

    Nice bass.
     
  4. very nice

    only thing i would change, is to get it the other way around :p
     

  5. I see - but then I'd have to get myself the other way around, too...
    :smug:
     
  6. Green is my favorite color, & you don't see a lot of basses that shade. Sweet.

    Very nice Warmoth !!!:D

    i'd try that green body with a black pickguard ...
    but that's just me .

    i dig the Gotoh bridge with the Sadowsky pickups .
    i'll bet it sounds great !

    as Jazz Ad said , with the Goth bridge, you should be able
    to roll the strings into alignment over the pickups ...
    but it's no biggie if they won't .

    got any more pictures ?
     
  8. Thanks!

    The Gogoth bridge on "The Frog" is not adjustable... maybe I'll replace it, maybe not... I don't really have an issue concerning the misalignment - it's purely cosmetical.

    Not yet more pictures - but these days, I'll post some of the "family" - i.e. my other lefties, including a sunburst Hotwire Vintage 4...

    Cheers

    Loving the finish, nice work, if the string issue doesn't affect the sound I doubt I'd bother to change it, it's unlikely anyone would ever even notice.

    That has a very smooth look too it. Very understaded for a bright green bass indeed. Looks classy.
     
  15. Thank you folks for the nice feedback!
    - Every time I see it, I like my new bass a bit more.

    :hyper:

    Just came back from the sunday night practise with my band. Brought "The Frog" with me, and the guys really dig it, too...
    :bassist:

    Very nice job... that's a great finish. I don't see a problem with the string alignment relative to the pickups either.

    Is it possible that there's been a thread about a green-burst bass for over a day and MajorMetal hasn't seen it?!?
