    Indeed. The top image is its cousin that went to Japan. It looks like I'm getting the next slice.


    This is what it looked like before it went to finishing.

    I've got one on order at Warmoth. Deluxe 5 J body. Already have the maple neck with ebony fretboard(no face dots) and koa peghead veneer. It'll be a few more weeks before I get the body :( Wishing I could see it.

    Bought the one-piece body and originally assembled it in '82 with a '70 Fender Tele maple neck. Currently with a Warmoth Padauk/ebony board J neck and Aero's, passive V-V-T. A great sounding bass.
