    So I picked up a loaded body and a fretless neck in the TB classifieds. I plan to finish the headstock to match the body but I put it together first last night to hear it, lovin' the lipstick pups! It's passive and I'll drop a pre in it as some point. I also think I need to shim the neck a little, but this is going to be a feel/tone monster for sure. The DR Neon Orange strings are for fun only, at some point I'll change 'em out for TI flats.

    Oh my word! Love those pups. Try a J-Retro with rounds... awesome.

    What sort of music will you be playing with it?

    Ah... just had a listen to your soundcloud.

    I play Drum&Bass with mine.

    Wow, that bass really catches the eye. I love the sparkle pickguard on it too.

    Yeah it looks way better in person, I'm a pretty bad photographer.

    I really like listening to your tone, but I have a feeling I would hate it if it were coming from my amp. killer bass tho, have fun and rock on :)

    Tone is such a personal thing, I've been on a quest for decades and mine changes depending on the tune or how I feel that day or even just what I happen to have closest to my hand sometimes. Thanks for the listen!
