    Sound like tou're gonna end up with a cool bass once you're finished. Personally, I'm not a fan of maple bodies any longer because it is a very dense wood that is very heavy.

    Ya I am pretty stoked about it, I want a maple body because I like a heavy bass - plus maple is nice and punchy... Also I hate j bass necks, so the p neck will rock... Also the 2 tone color sceme of the bass will be cool, oiled maple and black chrome... Mmmmmmmm yummy, I can't wait... But I need to sell some stuff to get it...
    oh well..

     
  4. Is the maple figured or plain? If its plain might it be a little boring looking? (not saying it will be bad, but maybe a nice stain would make it killer looking)
     
  5. You want to talk heavy, try a maple body, maple neck ebony fretboard(extended to 24th) fretless Warmoth J with a badass bridge.

    Luckily it sounds SUPER THICK;) :bassist:

    Plain, but I dunno... I want it to be a little plain... Kinda industrial looking... Let its pure tone be the star and not the looks - ya know?.. But again - I like the look of maple / maple /maple...
