Its taken a total of almost 3 months but my new bass is finished.I did almost all of the build myself so, I took my time. Here are the specs: Ash Gecko 5 body with AA curly maple top and black accent line Maple neck with maple board Black Hipshot Ultralite tuners and model A bridge Nordstrand DC5 pickups with series/single/parallel switching Aguilar OBP-3 preamp After 6 weeks, I received the body and neck from Warmoth. I finished the body with Danish oil(I think it was 10 coats) followed by polyuerathane( about 15 coats. I don't remember exactly now. It was just enough for the desired smoothness and gloss).Here's the body after 2 coats of Danish oil. Here's the results after all finishing-6 weeks after receipt of parts. Here's the bass pre final assembly Final shots! 7 weeks after receipt. I was very impressed with the wood- great figuring with standard figured maple body(not upgraded) and standard maple board(nice flame). After assembly and set up, I found it needed a fret leveling-another 3 days. So, I've had it a couple of weeks and I must say, I'm really diggin' this bass! I think I've found the tone inside my head with this combination. I see why a there's a lot of high end basses with the Nordstrand/Aguilar set up- very versatile from glassy high slap to dub and is almost piano-like in clarity.It is very light-around 9lbs, and evenly balanced. This is a definite keeper!
