    Well I just built a new warmoth p bass. I call it the arctic bass. I put some labella low tension flats on the bass and it sounds great!

    Good looking pair. Aside from the obvious, what are the differences?

    I just built a Warmoth P as well. Amazing quality instrument. Here's mine:

    Yes, I put a Fender waterslide on it....I know...I know....

    Thanks! I really like it. It's my first time putting Labella flats on a bass. It really has that old school sound.

    That's a beautiful bass! I thought about getting the roasted maple neck/fretboard, but I opted for the glossy regular maple.

    Nothing really. The bodies are both alder and they have the same Fender Original P Bass Pickups. The Dark Purple one has a satin finish on the neck and has a Gotoh Bridge and Tuners. The White one has a Glossy neck with a MIM Fender Bridge and Schaller Tuners.

    I love the roasted flame. It looks 3D. I am really wanting to do another build. A five string Jazz bass maybe? I need to see how the two basses I have being built by others turn out first. I may have all my bases (basses?) covered. :)

    Well in my experience the warmoth necks are some of the most stable I have played on. I've literally taken my purple bass out of the case and it starts dripping condensation and the neck has stayed solid and hasn't moved. I love em.

    I've had two people tell me that because my neck is flame, it will be unstable. So far, it's solid. It doesn't ever go out of tune. I've only had to tweak the truss rod a couple of times since I first strung up the neck...with new strings. So that's amazing.

    Not only are the Warmoth parts high quality, I have a blast choosing all the parts and put it all together.

    Yeah this was a cheaper build for me. But it's still nice. I really like it.

    Yep. I wanted this bass. Over $2000 with tax locally or shipping. I spent a little over $1200 all in for my Warmoth build. Used the Fender tuners. Fender neck plate. Fender knobs. An Emerson P bass wiring kit (which is WAY better than what Fender puts in). A Lindy Fralin pickup. So in my opinion, I got a much higher quality bass for almost half the price and I got the enjoyment of building it.

    This seems to be a new "P" year with all the "P" discussions and builds. Nice build!
