I know I don't post often, but I'm out here READING all of the time! Its not completely done YET, but I got my franken/custom bass back from the luthier today. Goncolo j-bass neck (neck and fretboard unfinished/Warmoth) Sherwood green b.hefner J-bass body (bought on TB from troyus) Fralin p/j pickups (j with a slight overwind - bought the j pickup from spellcaster on TB) etc...etc...etc... A few "flaws"/things left to do...the luthier who put it together didn't shave the body cavity/neck to get a fender like fit with regard to the neck "height" vs the body. The warmoth neck is a bit too "deep" for the b'hefner, so the bridge saddles are WAY up there to get the action where it isn't fretting out. He wanted me to play it first before shaving the body/neck for a better fit. The pocket is TIGHT side to side, but the neck is a bit too "tall". Anyone else experience this with warmoth/b.hefner? Also, the magnet spacing relative to the strings isn't perfect, but I wonder if a new bridge/bridge placement could help me with that. Any thoughts on that? I'll get better (ie non CELLPHONE) pics/sound clips out later today. Thanks again to the TB'ers who sold me the body/j pickup. I think with a little extra work, this is gonna be a sweet bass.
