    I am thinking about building a 5 string warmoth, with a regular jazz bass body.
    I was wondering, for those of you who build one, how is the B string.

    HI Yvon,

    I've built one lefty (koa body, maple neck and ebony board) and the B was great!

    See my site for pics!

    Peace, JP

    I've built 2 Warmoth 5 string Jazzes & they were both EXCELLENT. The B was very focused!!!!! Here is a picture of one of them:

    Well...this is several months after your origination of this thread but here's my two cents. I just finished a Warmoth 5 string P bass. Alder body, maple/maple neck. I personally don't like 35" scale, 5string basses and the B on my Warmoth while not as tight as some 35" scale basses it's still very tight and focused. The B sounds better than any MIM or MIA Fender 5 I've played or heard (not hard to do I'm told). If you like 34" 5stringers and can't afford a Sadowsky...Warmoth is the way to go (isn't that right, Nino?!).
