I stand by that quote!
Took it to rehearsal yesterday and got a few “cool bass” comments.
It’s a looker for sure.
As far as how it performs - the neck is a super narrow J neck, the pickups are straight J pickups (the stock electronics from the MIJ Jaguar reissues were CRAP!) and it plays like a buttery dream.
Sounds bright and crisp and lovely.
@terb I looked into that first but they are going for US $1,000+. I was hoping to do this project a little bit at a time so it wouldn’t be such a large outlay of cash all at once. One month I’ll buy a body. The next I’ll buy a bridge. That kind of thing.
@skydvr I have been looking at Warmoth for that kind of thing. The one you shared is probably too raw for me. I live in an apartment and even if I had the necessary tools to do a job like that, I don’t have a good place to be able to do the work. Thanks though. I appreciate you looking into it.
@eric.kiser apologies for posting on an old thread but did the Jazz Master bass project ever come to fruition ? The thread caught my eye as I have been sketching out a future project based on a Jazz Master / Bass VI.
