  1. Hi!!

    I'm planning on building a 6 string bass..

    All the specs were just some ideias i grabbed from several brands and models and i got to this..

    Body: Swap Ash 2pc
    Top: Flamed Maple 2pc
    Neck: Maple
    Fretboard: Rosewood
    Construction: Neck-through
    Bridge: Kahler fixed bridge
    Pickups: Nordstrand Fat Stack Set
    Machine Heads: Gotoh
    Preamp: Aguilar OBP3

    And maybe gonna with a chambered body to reduce weight.

    Is this a good combination of woods and electronics?

    Go with the Nord pre much less dramatic than the Aggie more usable range...Just my opinion..t

    I agree, it's hard to beat a Nordstrand pickup/preamp combo. You won't be disappointed.
