    I love the Black Limba body!:eek:

    JP! you're kind of busy these days, aren't you?

    What is the little piece of Koa for? for the back, to cover the preamp cavity?

    hey Hman,

    congratulations for this beautiful bass !

    Personaly I love this black limba :eek:

    It will be a another great production of JP.....

    Another thing....

    In reality, it seems that owners of Jp's basses use to buy another one after.....

    Another exemple with you ;)

    I missed that thread but lately JP told me you were ordering a new ZIA. Seems it will look very much like mine!

    Well... I guess you can't go wrong with a JP bass! :D
  12. is that a singlecut or a really big upper horn? it looks curved on the neck side, not straight like the plume singlecut. pretty sweet piece of wood. i like koa. i think the combination will produce some righteous, resonant tones.

    It is a single cut. The same style as this one:


  14. That is super sweet!
  15. nice.
  16. Amazing basses JP, I really love your work so far, with that five string single shown earlier on the page being a beauty.

    What sound does the combination of Black Limba (also known as Korina correct?) give with a wenge neck and wenge fingerboard? What about changes in the fingerboard?

    Thanks for answers, and please keep making amazing basses J.P., cause your basses are very organic looking to me and I'd love to have one.

    Well, same answers as always...

    Won't comment on wood specie = tone. Sorry.

    Limba body and wenge neck could sound very different depending on construction, pickups electronics...

    Limba is nice to work wit, it's light, looks cool and finishes well. Wenge neck is super stiff and offers a nice feeling.

    Thanks for the kind words :D

    Peace, JP
  18. JP,
    When do you expect to be able to show us the first finished basses(or almost finished) of your current production?

    Is impatience a sin?
