    Two recent, difficult to photograph additions. The "auto" setting on my camera makes them both look black.
    I picked up this blueburst MIK L2000 Trib a while ago but it had multiple issues and I only recently got it put back together. I actually ended up modding a Fender style replacement neck to fit because I didnt think this one could be saved.
    20180512_223723. Also snagged a low cost way to try out a 5er, a Squier Standard P-Bass Special V. This one is from 2001 and I believe the color is Sherwood Green. It's currently strung E-C and horrible things were done to the nut to accomodate the lighter strings. I will be changing it back to B-G and replacing the nut. I think a gold anodized PG would look fabulous but I'm going to hold off on that for now.

    Finally have something worth posting. My wife is an artist, and I like building things. So a couple of cheap Chinese kits and we have the 'screaming chicken' guitar and bass. She's still trying to figure out the right materials for painting, the guitar was done with casein paint.. the bass is acrylic which built up a bit making it difficult to do a glassy clearcoat.. so I just used poly to protect it. Been playing it, plays pretty well... the volume pots are junk.. tuning machines horrible... but it plays okay. I might be looking at warmoth soon as we have a cool idea ;-) P5160003.JPG

    My newest custom parts build...
    It all started when I received a free B&B Sire neck when I bought a V7. Don't know why... but it was there. The blocks were slightly edge-peeling at the first few frets. Some glue through a syringe fixed that! Had to take a dremel and remove about .5mm of clear from the neck heel for it to fit and you can't even tell. :)

    Specs are:
    Sire B&B neck
    Warmoth Dinky Jazz body, ash
    Sadowsky preamp 9v
    DiMarzio Area J's
    Hipshot hardware

    Tone to die for! Not selling this one!
    All the Parts were well thought out and took a while to accumulate. Probably one of the best sounding/playing jazz basses I've pieced together!

    Hope you like it!
