new bass build complete

I'm not much of a bass player but i love building and customizing. This is my newly completed Fender Jazz/Precision/Stingray bass monster.

The body is a knock off Fender Jazz Bass which i gutted of all electronics and swapped the bridge out for a Babicz Full Contact Hardware bridge. New Pots, knobs, and jack. The pickup compliment is a Dimarzio Ultra Jazz in the bridge position, and a Seymour Duncan Stingray 4 pickup in the neck position. i routed the hole in the body to fit the MM pickup and did some careful measuring and Dremel work to the pick guard.

The neck is a 1977 Fender Precision Bass fretted neck with a brass nut, that was made fretless by carefully grinding down the frets level with the fretboard, sanding and re-finishing. This amazing work was however not accomplished by me, so props to whoever did it. The neck came without tuners so i put some Schaller tuners on it. Strings are Ernie Ball Power Slinky's.
