    Are you using chrome or black hardware? Go for the chrome hardware and get some of the chrome dome knobs like my Nordie;)

    JP Single cut...love it!:eek:
  5. Looks like your singlecut will be done around the same time as mine. Good stuff, that's a great piece for the top.

  6. Congrats Jazzman! this one gonna be sweet.
    Beautiful top, I cannot wait to see it finished!

    Larry pas de soucis.

    Hman, I will get chrome hardware. First I was thinkin about sliver knobs...maybe U can post one pix of your beautiful knobs.

    Geoff, exactely, these two basses are in production in the same time...but I will see your fisrt, I live not far from JP, and I love to see all the models he make.

    Xush, sorry, I have not met JP in TB, but in a french forum ;)

    Looks like JP basses is a drug.....and very powerful...you taste it one time, and you become addicted...

    Those silver knobs look great! Very nice.

    Also, another possibility to go with chrome hardware and black pickups might be these (the one on the left):
