    This was a bit of a labor of love and a painstaking overly thought-out research process to get EXACTLY what I wanted in a jazz bass. Turns out no one makes exactly what I want. How do we remedy that? Buy all the parts you want and build it yourself.

    There is a lot going on in here.
    Fender Body
    Status Graphite/Carbon Fiber UK neck
    Lindy Fralin 10% overwound split jazz pickups
    Bridge, Tuners and String Tree by Hipshot USA
    WD music Pick Guard, Control Plate, Wiring Harness
    CTS Potentiometers
    Switchcraft Jack
    Gotoh Knobs
    DR Black Beauty strings (for looks)

    Nice.

    I'm a fan of the "murdered out" look. Here's my Mustang LE PJ. It has a great P bass sound. I use nylon tapewound strings for tone.

    Since that picture was taken I've reinstalled the OEM knobs and I'm still looking for a black control plate for it.

    I'm drooling! I read off the list of parts in this baby to my husband (he's not a musician, but he does have to put up with me) and even he was impressed!
    Very cool bass. This is how you do black right!
