I've been stalling & deciding & planning & waffling & picking & choosing & evaluating & blah blah blah blah,,,, all for the purpose of deciding what components to include in my first self-built parts bass. Here's what I've got so far... Body: I originally was going to use a Warmoth Explorer, made from Black Korina, but have changed my mind, & really kinda like Warmoths Dinky P body, but will still be using Black Korina. Still waffling on whether to make it an arch top or not,,, but I'm really thinking I'll do it. Finish, I need to get my hands on it first, but will probably rub some black dye into it to darken it up, & then go w/ clear nitro finish. Neck: I'll be using a USACG birdseye or flame maple J-spec neck, w/ a USB-4 head w/ a standard satin finish. Pups: P/J configuration. This is where I'm really still waffling, as I just haven't had the time/experience to properly know,,, "THESE" are the pups I want.... However, I do like the Bart sound, so will probably just go Bart w/ an NTMB pre. Hardware: Hipshot Ultralite tuners, & bridge,,, all chrome.
