    Hey everybody,

    I have around 2 Grand to spend on a bass, and I wanted to go fivestring and J-Bass Like.

    I first thought about DP Custom, but I don´t believe that he will make a J-Bass Styled instrument for me, so I decided to go Warmoth. This is what I wanted:

    AAA Birdseye Maple with AAA Birdseye Maple Board
    Custom Head (My Tech will cut it)

    Swamp Ash with Laminated Top (Quilted Maple)
    Sunburst Finish

    EMG 40DC Humbuckers with Sadowsky Onboard Preamp

    Black, HipShot UltraLite Tuners
    Black, Gotoh Quick Release Bridge

    Please, tell me your opinions on this selections..

  2. Sounds good. Nino made his sadowsky clone from warmoth parts for about $900, and it looks DAMN nice. You wont be disappointed if you put it together right.

    Go for it!!!!! I love mine. I got the body from the "Thrift Shop" & the neck is un-finished maple/maple. You might have to have something made for you which might cost alittle more, but the bass will be a KILLER!!!!! I ordered parts to build a 4 string Jazz bass (alla Geddy Lee), have an old '79 P w/a Warmoth neck & used to own a Warmoth 8 string Jazz. Warmoth make EXCELLENT, hight quality stuff!!!!

    Aguilar OBP-1 pre-amp
    2 EMG 40 J's

    Gotoh tuning machines
    Schaller roller bridge

    Quilted maple top on ash body

    Best playing & sounding bass I own.
  4. Nino, I just keep loving the looks of that bass more and more.

    You did a spectacular job on it.
