    thanks, the sound is fantastic, lots of mwahh. I am really impressed with the walnut body it gives it a nice little punch and the zircote board is nice and warm. It is strung with LaBella black tape nylons.

    Nice. I've got a Dinky J in walnut too. Mine's mahog with a walnut top. For a little bit heavier wood, the Dinky body seems to have taken off just a bit of weight, seems less awkward to handle and looks good without a pickguard.:ninja:

    (assuming it's the one I lusted over for a while in the Warmoth "showroom") - I was bummed when it was finally sold.

    Not that I ended up following through on the Warmoth plan. I have to say - it looks a lot better than it would have if I'd gotten ahold of it.

    Yeah! I can vouch for the mwah on those walnut bodied Warmoths. My first fretless was a walnut Warmoth Jazz with a maple/ebony neck/board w/Bart p/u's and pre. Great sounding bass!

    Congratulations! Yours looks great! From what I hear about the Audere pre's, you should have awesome control of the mid freq's!

    That looks really nice.

    Glad I have decided to go the Danish oil route too.

    Thanks for all the compliments.

    yeah, I got it about a month ago out of the showroom, wasn't my first choice(being a dinky j) but I couldn't resist the price for the walnut. The dinky j body style grew on me real fast after I got started on the project. :D
