    Dang! @Bass Viking I am SO jealous! You are such a natural with the pick! I so wish I had spent more time trying to master playing with a pick. Excellent videos, and that Warmoth bass is stellar!

  2. Thank you very much. The body on that bass is the first Warmoth body I ever bought. It’s had several different necks and sounded great with every one.
  3. I think there’s also a pick with a hole in the middle. Your fingers making contact is supposed to hold it in place.

    Very nice - I love that blue, and the black works great.
    Very tasty....

    Congrats and enjoy it. I have 6 and find each exceptional.

    Thanks! The search for the elusive Taos Turquoise bass is what started it all.

    Hey everyone gonna be making a warmoth build soon going with a deluxe 5 jazz. My question is what’s up with the 24 fret? I’ve seen the outrageously impossible ugly extension that hangs over the body and then I’ve seen a couple where just 2 frets over hang and looks very usable. I’ve tried emailing warmoth and I should probably call them but has anyone else had any experience with this?

    The Jazz Deluxe 5 design has a 22-fret neck to start with, so it only needs a 2-fret overhang to get 24 frets. Some of the other models have 20-fret necks to start with (or 21 with a 1- fret overhang) so it takes a much longer overhang to get 24 frets.

  11. in looking at the photos they seem to be about the same - albeit-one has two additional frets. But the angle of the phot exaggerates it

    If it helps, I have it on a four, it's really unobtrusive

    Do you still have access to the truss rod without removing the neck?

    I'll have to stick an Allen wrench in there to see. With a quartersawn, all wenge neck, I may never need to adjust it.....

    I sort of did a thing. Ordered a new P Bass body as a replacement for the Squier body I'm currently using with a Lowe Custom medium scale conversion neck. Build spec for the body is in the pic. Now to wait 8-10 weeks. The Squier will get rebuilt with a spare Fender neck and pickups I already have, and then sold. I might even recoup 30-50% of the cost of the body :crying:

    That is pretty cool! The Carved Top Dinky P has long since been discontinued, but I always thought it was one of our cooler original shapes.

    I'm very fortunate to have one. Body is Mahogany, 5A Quilt upgrade cap, Macassar Ebony neck and FB. It look great, plays/sounds amazing and is my Number 1! I have 5 other Warmoths, all also amazing, but this one sits on top. Too bad this shape is discontinued - it really looks terrific!!!
