    The look is obviously a bit cliched, but it sounds great. I love the grinding tone.

    looks good to me.. I've never even tried to build a bass.. I would like to.. but i am scared I would botch it
  7. Not the smoothest finish, but definately awesome for a home job! Not bad tone either.
  8. I really dig the gold on natural. I got that with my Carvin.

    I'll give it a 8 outta 10 cuz it was easy to dance to. Other than that it does have most of the features that I like in a bass. Brass nut... decent bridge... but my personal pet peeve is that I like an angled headstock, but hey 100 million Fender owners can't be wrong.:D

    I do like the overall look. Are gonna keep building? looks like you should.

    hey, thanks everyone for replying. I didnt cut the body or neck myself; the neck came from warmoth the body came off ebay but i obviously did the finish myself :rolleyes: . Im glad some of you dig the tone. How do you think it compares to a fender american delux P bass? better, worse or about the same? Im thinking about putting stickers across the front of it to give it some style. what do u all think?
  12. i wouldnt put stickers on it. sometimes a i see a bass and think "hmmm....stickers....", but this is not one of those basses. i say leave it as it is, it looks classy.

    deffinetly no stickers, it's fine the way it is.
  14. I agree,looks good w/o stickers. I have stickers on my homemade bass. But,it's a total beater,so...
    Nice bass,sounds great,probably about equal to an American Deluxe P-Bass. I bet your electronics would be considered by most to be an upgrade to the Fender. And your bridge is higher quality too. Just my $.02
  15. The body doesn't lend itself too well to stickering. I don't like stickers on natural finishes, personally.

    But I think a paint job would be cool, if you're up for it. Stripes or checkerboard.
