    They're similar to Lakland's; a little chunky, but comfortably so

    What will the other two positions do on the 4-way rotary?

    Maybe the tryptophan has kicked in... but I'm missing something. Could you please list the four positions of the rotary? Thanks!

  6. I'm not sure what order Jake will put them in, but:
    - Bridge pickup solo
    - Neck pickup solo
    - Both pickups, in parallel
    - Both pickups, in series

    Here's an explanation of series/parallel: What are series and parallel wiring?

    10-4. That appears to be a cool layout. Thanks for explaining... enjoy the Serek... and have a happy Thanksgiving!

    Jake reached out last week to tell me the day they started work on my bass!

    I'm not just really pleased at the idea of getting a bass that's pretty funky and distinct. I'm also really glad to be patronizing a small business run by a person who's been incredibly patient with my constant questions and emails, who is passionate about what he does, and who basically has been an all-around mensch

    also, apparently Marc Najjar (formerly of Chicago Music Exchange, now works at Sandberg) started a podcast and Jake's the first guest

    @jmjbassplayer had the idea that eluded everyone else, and that may be one definition of genius (you'll probably need headphones for the bass demo)

    Months? That's pretty much his wait time now for completion. I was told April when I paid about 2 weeks ago. Once he gets going it just not take him long.

    Been geeking out on my Moollon for the past couple of months but pulled this bad boy out for a few Allman Bros tunes tonight. Sounds, looks, and plays like a dream. Total blast to play. Love the Labella Tape Wounds on it. Go back and forth between them and Dunlop Flats.

    Anyone who's gone the Midwestern 2 route second-guessed their chosen scale length (i.e., if you went 30.5", do you ever wish you had gone 32" or vice-versa)?

    Gracias.

    So I made a couple changes to my order. Instead of a Novak BD-DS w/ coil tap, I'm going to go with some Nordstrand Power Blades that I'll have installed in reverse, with the D&G coils closer to the neck. I also didn't realize that the picture I originally posted here had a different pickguard shape than he's doing now, so I'm going to go with that. I want more of the mahogany to show through, and in my mind, the thought of a traditional split P pickup looks better on the design I'm choosing, where as a Guild style pickup looks equally as good on the larger pickguard he uses. Plus this pickguard style is more like what I'm used to, so it's a nod to that.
