Ok, I recently had an idea to build a Warmoth custom bass. I have the basic idea, but I want some suggestions, tips, and methods on how to do it. Here's my idea so far: -Black Korina Body (It looks good, I hear it sounds and feels good) -Oil or Natural Satin finish? -Rear Routed (But I still want a Control plate and Pickguard, its just that the Rear Rout gives me more room inside the bass to put things) -Quartersawn (How much extra does that cost?) Maple Neck with a Pau Ferro fretboard, or Wenge/Bubinga with an Ebony fretboard? The Wenge/Bubinga would be more expensive but not too bad. -What about a Moses neck? I like the feel of graphite, and the price would be about the same as the Wenge/Bubinga neck. -Clear Satin neck finish or if I got the Wenge/Bubinga would it be a good idea to leave it unfinished? I live in a very humid area, so I'm wondering if I should get it finished by warmoth, or finish it myself (How? What would I finish it with?) -Gotoh 206 Bridge, strings routed through the body -Schaller Tuners -Graphtek Nut -one of those Bar string retainers that hold all the strings down just behind the nut -EMG J-Set, I know you can order these with pots/knobs, but does it come with an output jack? Can I get them to send me a Vol/Blend/Tone setup instead of Vol/Vol/Tone? -Aguilar OBP-1 Preamp, I'll probably get this last, like a few months AFTER I make the bass, does this come with a jack, pots, and knobs or is it just a thing you hook up to your existing stuff? -Battery Box -Black Hardware, except for the j-bass control plate, which will be chrome, and a Black Pearl j-bass pickguard Any suggestions? What about tung-oiling the body, how much is tung oil and how long would it take? Any tips on how to build the bass? Any parts that I don't need (ie. do I really need a Neck Plate, or do I need one of those Football Jack plates at all? I hope not...) I MIGHT decide against the PG/Control plate, I just don't like the look of a pickguardless fender body shape.
