    This has been an idea of mine for about 10 years. I was lucky enough to finally make it a reality.

    It's a Warmoth wenge neck and pickguard, Curtis Novak bi-sonic, and a 51 tele ash body i found on eBay. I finished the body myself using ReRanch aerosol cans.

    Unfortunately, I have no way to post any decent recordings. But the sound is very similar to a vintage Precision bass. I dig it.

    Ocean Turqoise. The metallic sheen didn’t pick up very well in the pics.
