    Great call
     
  2. Also possibly silver middle ply to match headstock logo and knobs/bridge?

    Maybe we can make a deal for the pickguard and the stickers!

    P.S. thinking of putting a Music Man in mine.

    P.S.S. .. Even though the stock pups were fine, i put Geezers in my black SX Gypsy Rose. Nice!

    If my daughter does not want the stickers, they are yours! As is the guard once I have the new one!

    I'll check out pickguardian

    Pups seem fine, more inclined to swap out the tuners for ultralights i think. While the neck is off for defretting, I'll shoot the stock pups yellow.

    Can anyone recommend a decent case or gig bag that will fit 32"? I would like something sized for the bass rather than using the standard P/J offerings, which don't always fit. For example, I have a new Gator soft case that won't fit my full-size j body with conversion neck. Also having trouble finding a good fit for Warmoth SSB body and 32" neck. Just wondering what folks are using. Looking for nice padding, zips and/or latches, in the $100 range.

    I have to say that this SX medium is a DARN fine bass! I had an SX once before, maybe 12 years ago, and it was fine, good for the price. This one is far better, and an insane price. I would heartily recommend

  10. Totally agree. It's crazy to think that for just over $110 you can get a viable bass. Some may want to change pickups, but these sound pretty good to my ancient ears, action is great and weight is perfect - love the neck. Not sure what the downside is other then equipment snobs may shun you.

    This fits my Warmoth 32" SSB Jazz perfectly but a bit higher than your budget.

  14. Thanks. It was for about three weeks until I got my Birdsong. Now it's #2. I don't play my Fender Jazz 34's much anymore which used to be my main players. I'm still a beginner, though.

    IMG_1427.JPG Here's my newest Bass. It's a Morgan Monroe Rocky Top F Bass from around 2007. A very rare Bass and the previous owner had a Hofner Diamond pickup installed Love the look and she plays and sounds like an old Hofner Beatle Bass.
     
  16. A whole lot better looking than a Hofner, IMHO.

    My Warmoth SSB P 32" lives in a Mono Bass Sleeve. I have a couple of rolled up T shirts in the bottom to lift the bass so the neck fits properly in the support pad. I just bought a Gator Transit bag and it fits the SSP as is.

    NBD! - (in a roundabout way)

    Background: For those that followed this thread, MEDIUM SCALE WARWICK ROCKBASS 5'er, this just changed everything, I was pretty excited, then disappointed in the turn of events. Figuring I'd never see one of these, I decided that if I wound up with a jet-black version, (I preferred the natural,) that I would have it refinished. That was 4 years ago.

    In May, I was perusing the Guitar Center used listings while sipping coffee...and, wouldn't you know, a medium-scale Rockbass Corvette 5 string in jet-black! No hesitation on my part. True to myself, I sent the body off to Guitar Paint Guys, (GuitarPaintGuys - Cool. Custom. Guitars and Guitar Painting). Looking for a finish that would match well with the basic chrome hardware, I chose their Ocean Deep Decay finish. They did a fabulous job!

    I also added an Aguilar OBP-2 preamp. I liked the MEC active pickups, but wasn't crazy about the preamp. I kept the same setup, (V-Bl-T-B), and wired it for 18v. Very nice.

    The toughest part of all of this, and something that I will continue researching, are the strings. The DR short set I purchased with a 34" wind was just short. I had spoken with Jason @ bassstringsonline, and after taking measurements, I picked up a set of Elixirs, one of the shorter long-scale sets. Still, as you can see in the pic, the "talking" length is wrapping some around on the B-string. It's holding, so I'll take it.
