    Fender Deluxe neck, maple w/ Pau Ferro board

    Seymour Duncan SMB-5 wired active vol/tone with one concentric knob (Don't like the sound of acitve onboard pre)

    Black WD music Spector style bridge

    Black Gotoh Tuners

    Fender Jazz Deluxe bodies are smaller than Standard Jazz bodies ;) .

    Actually, they're pretty much the same size, except for the lower horn on the Deluxe being shorter to accommodate the 22-fret neck. At least, that's what it looks like when I hold my Warmoth Jazz 4 and Jazz Deluxe 5 against each other.

    Sounds great,
    I too have G.A.S. to build my own Warmoth Jazz bass.

    I have the specs. written down and have inquired Warmoth of some options.

    That would be a very cool bass! Good luck with the project.

    Peace,

  9. Just a question... No finish? I think a clear satin or clear gloss finish would be nicer, the wood looks a little bare. It looks like it's going to be great, I want a Warmoth!
