    darn pretty bass youve got there!! The inlays are quite interesting! I cant tell if its the color of the neck maple or the inlays that are super light and bright, perhaps both?! Almost like ghost inlays!

    very sharp bass, looks like you went for some serious tone with the bridge and the dimarzio's, i bet it sounds boss!

    + 1 million for the lollipop tuners!

    Dig the pearl (aged pearl?) blocks on the maple neck...and the color is sweet!
  5. Never considered that colour before, but it really does look great! Nice bass.

  9. Wow. That 'guard, and blocks look great. I'm not a big fan of tort, but it goes great with that color. Nice look.

    P-bodied, P/J pickuped, J-necked (?) bass with P decal. And a Dreamsicle finish. It's like the greatest hits of Fender in one package. Nice.

    Yes it's a Jazz shaped neck. I put everything I loved about every bass I've owned into one instrument. I'm happy with the results, though there will probably be some more wiring tinkering or perhaps some more pickup swapping to get it just perfect. That said, I was really, really happy with it out of the box.

    This is one that is not leaving my stable. (When you wait for it as long as you did for your kids, you've got to hold on to them for at least 18 years anyhow).

    Lovely; if I could get that finish on a production P I'd buy (another) one today.

    Love those tuners! I've got to order myself a set for one of my precisions.

    Great color too. Does it have any metallic in it? Hard to tell from the photos.

    Love the color combination!

    Forgive me but is the J pickup slightly angled? It also appears that the routing there is a little better on the top than the bottom.
