New custom tele bass build coming

Postby ghiadub » Tue Oct 02, 2012 8:59 pm

Hey guys. I picked up this custom built jazz bass here locally and have been toying with parting it out.

Then, I have been seeing Kennan's FB posts on his carbonita build and it got me thinking.

Here is the plan;
Maple tele neck - this one has a finish like a stingray, with the wax or whatever?
51' P body with Darkstar pickup - thanks Harleyyy
Bayou cables harness - Thanks Butch!
Black parts/control plate/knobs
Antigua paint with a black 51 P PG

Thoughts? Ideas?

Here is the neck on its original body

Not an Antigua fan but the rest sounds great.

Also, I have no need for the body and the EMG pickups, if anyone is interested just ping me.

That bass is part of my inspiration on the DS pickups.
