    Well, my new jazz bass showed up. Putting it together right now. Figured I'd let y'all in on the action. 20220811_192519.jpg 20220811_192532.jpg

    Dang, I gotta find that peice. It must've come off when I pulled the neck off another bass. I had broken it filing it, and glued it back on. It's been there for 2 years now. I guess it was time.

    Alright, new nut is on it's way. Should've just done that when I broke it. To begin with. But hell, crazy glue held up just fine.

    Okay, pots. The fun part

    I'm gonna hit it, vol/blend/tone

    Well, I have a black control plate showing up with my new ashdown, and I'm probably going to buy a different pickguard. The picture didn't show the heel rod hole. I wanted it flat across. But, oh well. It'll either drive me nuts, or I'll forget about it.

    Nah, I've already got my neck in my cart, just dont got the cash quite yet. I sold my V4b and bought an ashdown 600 and a new MIM Jazz body with it. But, I had everything else already besides the pickguard. So I just threw it together real quick. I pulled this P neck off my PJ, and put my blocked rosewood neck on that. This one's s just temporary. But, I am keeping it classic. There's something that is both very classy, and very mean about a sunburst J, blacked out with maple blocks.
