    hello, I want make a 5 jazz with warmoth (or some other supplier) parts....

    because warmoth offers standars and deluxe models...could you guys help me to choose the right model of body to get a smilar body and neck like this one? :


    I want 34", 1 3/4" nut width and 18,5mm string space at bridge, 21 frets...

    thanks to all
  2. Looks like either a deluxe 5 or standard 5 body with a standard 5 neck.

    34" scale is the standard. In fact I don't think they offer 35" scale.

    Your nut width options are 1 3/4" or 1 7/8" for 5 string necks. Choose whichever you want.

    There appears to only be a 20 fret option for the standard 5 neck. No 21 fret option. You can always call and ask, though.

    String spacing will depend completely on what bridge you buy and how the nut is cut. Talk that over with whoever assembles the bass.
  3. LOL man, you were damned quick. I realized he was looking to build a 5 banger so deleted my post within minutes! Had to find the right links.
  4. :D
  5. The Deluxe 5 4+1 has both 22 and 24 options on a 34" scale. Interesting!

    When I win the lottery I'm going to do a Warmoth project. WHEN!
  6. If I won the lottery I'd get something custom hand-made. Warmoth doesn't have nearly enough options for me.
