    New parts bass day! Well actually finished yesterday. Finally got around to finishing this build. I had bought a B. Hefner swamp ash body which is taking forever me to finish in a way I'm happy with (tru-oil yearghhh! but that's another topic).

    So a couple weeks ago I saw a special on this swamp ash body at Warmoth and decided to grab it and finish this build. The neck is a Fender USA 2016 neck, Aguilar PJ pickup set, and Babicz bridge (which is an amazing piece of engineering). Body was 4lbs 13oz. This thing will take a really low set up and the neck feels and plays really well. Anyhoo...here are the pics.

    This sat in the mix beautifully tonight at rehearsal. Got compliments on the tone(s) and look from my band mates. My new number one.
