    Warmoth Makes some great stuff. Eye is right, that Quilted Alder is amazing.

    I really need to get around to getting a Warmoth one of these days...

    Out of curiosity, do you know offhand what the price of the quilted alder is, Nino? (or anyone, for that matter)

    Sorry, I CCPed the abbreviations from the Warmoth Website. It's a quilted maple top on Alder body. :) That particular body is $399.99. <a href="http://www.warmoth.com/thrift/bodies/B4BassThrift.htm">CLICK HERE</a> these & a few more. Just scroll down to "Painted Bodies".
     
  8. Lordy, that is so me. I think they have a better looking one, and I'll wind up getting it. And I'm not posting the pic (so no one slides it from underneath me :) ) But damn, $469 is a bit to pay for just a body :eek: . Most I'd go for is $400, but damnit, those dudes look worth it.

    yeah those things are sexy. i was considering buying a body and neck out of their thrift shop and adding a seymour duncan music man replacement system. and have myself a nice 5 string.. but it was a little too much money... so ive got my ATK...
     
  10. I love em!!......

    I'm actually getting a jazz body made by a local guy here. Getting those kind of top wood is really hard.....but believe me...I'm gonna get one@!!@

    Hey notduane, Where did you get the picture of that blue quilt P-bass? I saw it on the "Thrift Shop" a while ago & was gonna buy it. Did you buy it?

    mm i want to build a Warmoth bass..

    wanna help me build one Nino? :D
     
  15. That koa/sash body looks awesome. I don't think that I could afford to build a bass like that from scratch, but it sure looks nice!

    Nahhh...I wish :)

    I just check the Thrift Shop every "update" Thursday.
    If there's somethin' interestin', I'll stick it in my "Bass Bodies"
    gallery at http://www.picturetrail.com/notduane.
    Enjoy!

    Speakin' of ancient history, did you catch that SOLID ebony
    neck? Ebony fretboard AND neck. Had to weigh a ton. I think
    it went for ~$425.

    Nino B! You musta' seen their "Tele style" bods...
    Make your own G&L? nudge-nudge wink-wink ;).

    If I DID make a Warmoth, it'd be like a poor-man's Rob Allen...
    Dinky P bod (carved maple top over alder or mahogany),
    drilled for a Gotoh 201, F.A.A.S. pickup in the Gotoh, unlined
    ebony over birdseye maple neck with Warmoth 2+2 headstock.
    Someday....:rolleyes:

    I didn't see the all ebony neck. :( I have seen those Tele basses & thought about building one, but I don't think I'll ever play it. But that hasen't stopped mr before. LOL. :D I had a nice ASAT that I sold & I wish I never did, but it was kind of uncomfortable to play strapped on, IMO. I have a G&L L-2000 body in trans blue that I got off of eBay about a year ago & I think that'll be my next project. I have one p/u & a G&L pre-amp.
    ABSOLUTLY!!!!!!!!

    I bought one a couple years ago. I didn't go with Warmoth's paint, instead the Wilkins shop did the paintwork on mine:

    The picture does not do the bass justice at all. :( The headstock is painted to match, though it is not quitled.
