    Well, i'm got some money, and i have serious gas for a nice, J workhorse! So i'm considering getting some parts from Warmoth and bulid it, hehe ;).

    Here's what i want:

    -A "vintage" jazz bass, 4 string, 34" scale.
    -Hard Ash body and maple\maple neck
    -Stainless steel frets, warmoth construction: two way truss and reinforcement.
    -Seymour Duncan Antiquity jazz bass p.u's, and switchcraft\CTS electronics
    -Nitro finished body (proably gonna do it myself :D) and clear laquered neck\fingerboard
    -Creme block inlays, creme celluoid\pearloid pickguard
    -Gold hardware, solid string-trough brigde

    And way too much to list :). I bulit a *guitar* with the same looks on a website, and here's a pic:

    So, what do ya think? Sorry for the gas vent, but you know what it's like, rigth? :)

    Cheers!

    I've got a "nice, J workhorse" for sale in the classified section if you decide you don't want to mess with assembly, cutting the nut, electronics installation, etc. etc. etc ...

    Ash body with a maple fretboard will give you a '70s vintage type bass, but you might wanna rethink the stainless steel frets. SS frets won't sound vintage.
