It took me a few months to finally get around to finishing this project,
i bought a blank jazz bass ash body of ebay, very rough, unsanded/sealed.

no wiring holeshad been drilled to run pickup wires from cavity to cavity, this was a problem without a long drill bit, needless to say there was alot of bogging and sanding going on.

i then purchased a mighty mite maple neck (which is hard to do if you live in australia) the first one got lost on it's way so the supplier sent me a second one free of charge.

the pickups are fender custom shop 60's jazz bass noiseless.
the paint was hard, as the 2 part primer was being absorbed into the wood, therfore the grain was very visible, but alot more sanding fixed this problem.
i then applied many, many, many coats of 2 pack tangerine paint.

up close the paint on the back isn't too flash, but i got it as good as one can with a hardware store paint gun (not quite professional grade)
but the paint on the front looks pretty decent.

other parts: gotoh bride/tuning machines, fender control plate and pickguard. dimarzio pots.

overall i am quite happy, the tone controls are very responsive and i'm happy with some of the sounds i can dial in.

thanks for looking.

thanks man!

on my peavey (currently dead) 6505.

i mostly play hardcore, but i usually use the normal gain input, lead gain on about 8-9, low on about 4-5, mids ups around 6-7, highs on around 7-8 lots of presesence and resonance.
i think... i haven't seen that amp for weeks as it currently awaiting warranty work (i have no idea why it isn't working)
