    My wife bought me a Mighty Mite body and neck and gave them to me as a chistmas present. I used all Fender hardware and a Badass II bridge with Dimarzio Model J pickups. Everthing fit together perfectly. The finish is absolutly beautiful. After I got it all together I took it to a local Luthier to dress the frets and make all the final tweaks. This is one of the best playing basses I've ever owned. It turned out better than I could have hoped for.

    Awesome. I'm working on building a J bass right now and putting ultra jazzes in it. How do the model J's sound?

    Model J's are awesome. They are definately some of the hottest/highest output pickup's I have come across.

    I put a set in my Geddy, and not only did they preserve the awesome tone, but they got rid of the hum and have excellent output. Great pickups! Time tested and still kickin'... for good reason. :)
  6. Beautiful bass...I really like it...I really like it when a plan comes together

    My only complaint is that I don't like the Fender decal on the headstock. If it's not a Fender, why put a Fender decal?

    I really like the Model J's. Great tone and hot outout. I've used EMG's for years but when I built this I used the Dimarzio's because of all the good reviews I had read. I'm glad I did, they sound better than the EMG's to me without the battery hassle.

    I put the headstock decal on because I think it would just look unfinished without it. Besides, allot of the parts are Fender :p
    If I were building it to sell I would'nt have used the decal.
