    Here's a pic of my latest bass, MarkoMan Jazzray :)
    Alder body, maple/maple neck/fingerboard, Ibanez smooth tuner b2 tuners (thanks jonradwan), a Musicman copy bridge and SD QP bridge pickup on MM position.

  2. Hey that's a nice looking instrument. Did you make the body from scratch or did you source it from a parts supplier? Either way it looks like a great piece. I'm curious as to how it sounds. It the SD QP a hum-canceling pickup or do you have a dummy coil? If not, is there alot of feedback? It looks nice no matter what.

    I made it from the beginning myself. PU is not hum cancelling and there's no dummy coil. I shielded the cavities and hope there's not too much noise left. As for the sound I can't really tell as I've only played it without amp. Acoustically it sounds good at least to my ears.

    simple and classy. i like it

    personaly i would have gone with a P pup : )

    im thinkin about doing something very similar, but mounting passive tone controls and volume in the bottom of the guitar resesed into the body.
