Warmoth PJ Woohoo!

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by Jeff Rader, Feb 17, 2002.

  1. I got my Warmoth P/J 4 string yesterday. I had wanted a 4 string P bass and decided on this. I had a local tech put it together. It's still settling in, but it does sound nice.

    Here's the specs:
    Warmoth J style body, P/J routing. Custom pickguard.

    Warmoth Jazz neck with matching headstock, black binding and inlays. The neck is gloss finished on the front and satin on the back. It has a great feel. I think we may need to do some fret leveling.

    J-Retro preamp with black bottom knobs and chrome top. (Thanks, Dude!) Great preamp!

    ABM chrome locking bridge

    Lindy Fralin P/J pickups

    Dunlop Straplocs

    Schaller tuners

    Here's the pics:

    Very sweet! Soon, we'll all be playing Warmoth.

    Resistance is futile.

    Two words, Jeff: bitch-IN!

    Sorry to hear about the buzzy frets. I thought all that Warmoth stuff was supposed to be stage-ready.

    Now we got to get that sucker pimped-up some more. How bout some purty mother-of-toilet-seat dice control knobs to go with it??? ;) -

    And a nice co-ordinating strap???

    Very nice! I especially like the block/binding neck and the chrome knob/black ring. That knob/ring combo would look good on a souped-up jetglo Rick.

    Q: What exactly does "locking" mean wrt the bridge?
  15. There is a screw that allows you to lock the saddle horizontally and vertically once you get it set so you can not only adjust string height, but also spacing at the bridge.
