    Disclosure: I tackled the design and wiring but the hat goes for Dave from Soundranger in Germany, who did the actual hand-work, great guy and awesome tech!

    So without further delays:

    Seafoam green over sunburst.
    Delano sonar 2 Preamp.
    3 way selector switch with cream tip.
    Seymour Duncan SPB3 on the neck.
    DiMarzio DP123 on the Bridge.
    Fender Deluxe Tuners with F Engraved Hipshot BT4 D-Tuner
    Fender Deluxe Bridge with string through ferrules and aluminium sustain plate.
    Cream Jazz Bass knobs with Volume Push-pull for Series/Parallel.
    Fender Decal over the lacquer on matching headstock.
    Maple Neck with Rosewood Fretboard, Block inlays and Binding.
    F Stamped Neck plate.
    and the pièce de résistance: Special designed Gold anodized Aluminium pickguard.

    To do:
    String tree (chrome).
    Cream pickup covers.
    Thumb rest (I guess Black, have't found any in cream and brass clashes a bit).
    strap-locks.

    That's a generic neck from eBay. I'm guessing PRC, but it is solid and feels great. A bit heavy on the lacquer, though.

    Get a brass thumb rest and have it gold plated.

    I think I might just stick with the black one, it kind of gave contrast to the bass.

    Yea, I can see that working with the pickups.

    Looks good, BTW.
