    I plan on making one ina few months, and if this thread turns into a megathread or something like that, or is still alive, I'll post it.

    for your enjoyment, I'll post what I'm doing to it.

    SX SJB-62 Black
    SD Basslines Quarter Pounder Pickups
    Gotoh vintage reverse tuners black
    Gotoh high mass bridge for jazz bass Black
    Gotoh quick release strap locks black
    3-ply jazz pickhuard
    Vintage Jazz knobs black
    String tree black
    vintage wiring kit for jazz bass
    pickguard screws black
    neck plate black

    It's going to have a rosewood board, and I'm going to paint the headstock black, in other words, it's going to be a kick a$$ stealth bass. I'm gonna be spending about $500 for it, and I know it'll be worth it.
