    I've been considering a Warmoth custom bass, not that I have the money right now, but I've bad GAS and I have nothing better to do than sit around and dream about a new bass. So here's my question. By the time you actually get all the accessories and everything to make the bass a playable instrument, how much will it set you back, including shipping and taking it to shop to get electronics and stuff installed? Thanks for any help with this.

    By the way, what I want is a P-Bass with a surf green finish, a perloid pickguard, maple jazz neck w/ Rosewood fingerboard, a Badass II, 3 Schaller tuners, 1 Hipshot, and Seymour Duncan P pups.

    Hey Dirk... BassNW has a 60's reissue p-bass in a sea foam green.. The neck looks like jazz bass spacing... It does need the pickguard you want and a hipshot, but you might like the stock pickup... (www.bassnw.com) Good Luck... Steve....
     
  3. I think about the $800 range, although I didn't go to a shop for the electronics. I have no idea what that will cost. Just go to warmoth.com with a calculator and add it all up. I like your design. That will look really nice.

    My 5 string bass cost a total of $900 to build. The 4 string cost about $600. I bought the body of the 5 string on the Warmoth Thrift shop. The boby I bought from the Warmoth in stock body page. Both neck I bought unfinished to keep cost down.

    Most of the parts you can get from Warmoth, the tuning machines, pickguard, pick-up's but some parts you have to order like the BadAss II & the Hip Shot.

    It sound like you will have an AWESOME bass when you're finished. It'll definitly be worth it!!!!! I played my 5 string compared to a Fender Deluxe USA 5 & I played my 4 string compared to a Fender Geddy Lee & USA '75 Re-issue & both my basses DESTROYED the Fenders!!!!!
