I've finally been able to make up my mind on what my next project is going to be and I've decided on making a five string jazz(ish) bass. Here's the specs I'm tossing around right now: - One piece Wenge body - Pau Ferro neck - Ebony fretboard - Bloodwood block inlays and binding on the neck (still unsure on this one) - Bloodwood pickguard (also unsure on whether or not to use a pickguard) - Q-tuner pickups (again, largely unsure right now) - Black hardware (brands undecided) - No finish on the neck (lemon oil?) - A few coats of satin wipe-on poly on the body or no finish at all (Warmoth says Wenge doesn't need a finish, but I'm not sure I trust that on a body; we'll see) I know, I know, this is going to weigh a ton. I'm going to make the body somewhere between 1 3/8" and 1 1/2" thick to help a little bit with the weight. Here's some pictures of a very rough body and neck so far. Progress will probably be quite slow on this due to a lack of equipment at the moment, but I can't wait to really start working on it.
