    I can´t make up my mind. It´s gonna be a 70´s looking jazz bass with rosewood fretboard, blockinlays and matching headstock but I don´t know what color it will be.
    Help:confused:

    I think some pictures of the colors might be helpful, or a link to them....

    I e-mailed Warmoth and they said it was possible to get those colors.
    I haven´t got any good links to the colors.:(
    Fenders site has some.

    Nah, then it would have to be made of ash and I dont want that. I want alder.

    I know color is cheaper, but nothing beats the natural look of the wood

    I'm with Pacman - Shoreline Gold w/matching headstock and rosewood fingerboard is a killer combination! Go with a Warmoth tort guard as well...

    The last time I talked to Warmoth, they were not offering Candy Apply Red. Not only was it not listed on their site, but they used to have a small note specifically stating that this was not available. Please post a follow-up and let me/us know if this has changed. Thanks.

    I e-mailed Warmoth a couple of days ago and specificly asked if they could do a Candy Apple Red jazz with matching headstock. They said it was possible.
    They are not verry polite in their mails. I would like to go with Uscustoms instead (really friendly) but they cant do the blocks.:(
     
  11. Welp, give them a call. Any questions can be answered, plus any suggestions can be given. Just give them an idea of what you're looking for and a credit card # :) It's easier to talk on the phone and try and describe something.

    3 tone sunburst or Natural

    My favorite finish of all time is tweed.

    Jock, you didn't mention a pickguard. Can we assume your project Jazz won't have one?

    btw, I would go with the sherwood green!

    I have to third that opinion.

    All the best wood goes into the natural bodies, all the rest get painted.

    Sonic Blue: it's just such a cool color! It looks cool with a matching headstock, too.
     
  19. I'd do the sherwood green...

    ...now if a shade of dark purple/violet were available, mmm m-m-m!!
