2013, it looks like there will be no 2014 models, he's got one more in stock, red with nitro finish.

Just got my MIJ jazz back from paint. Not sure which look I prefer. Was white but after a little accident with some paint stripper I decided on a refin. Had all the holes filled in case I decide to use it minus the eye candy.

I don't like the tort, it's much too red to my liking. Would probably prefer it clean, or with a black 3-ply. I always think that little white line adds some class :). I love it on my '75 RI, very luxurious (especially with the B&B neck).

Gorgeous 75RI you have there LeftyJ.
I tried the darker tort guard from my other jazz on the bass and it looked good but I'll keep it plain for a bit. Still to show it assembled to the guy who painted it.

That 75RI is just about Jazz perfection, had my eye on one at Ishibashi, beautiful looking bass, would be drooling over it even withnout the b&b neck which just makes it look amazing :gas: .

My second F(ake)ender Jazz Bass V.
Posted Image
As it came out of the box 2 months ago.

And after all the modifications. It took a while because some parts I needed were not in stock at the shop where ordered them.
Posted Image
What I've done to it:
- Aligned the tuners.
- Aligned the neck.
- Widened the string spacing at the bridge.
- Made a new pickguard.
- replaced the electronics, with stacked knob controls.
- (Hidden) proper grounding and shielding.

Posted Image
Made two new saddles for E and D strings, they are 3 millimeters wider than the stock ones, 1.5 millimeters on each side, this gives a string spacing of 17.5 millimeters over each string, exactly what I prefer.
It's quick and dirty, bur works and once the cover is over the bridge no one will see it.

And the final modification is in place, a tort pickguard.
Posted Image
The gold colored one was not bad but this is what I had in mind when I started working on it.

Hi Polymad, and welcome. The best way to post photos on Basschat is to upload them to a site such as Flickr or Photobucket or Picasa etc., then copy the link to the JPG file and paste it into the box that appears when you press the photo icon in your reply field (the square button with a green tree, in the toolbar above the typing field).
There is also the option of uploading the pic to Basschat, but the system is pretty buggy and cumbersome and best avoided.

Excellent job blablas. Let us know if you ever decide to start making custom pickguards for fellow lefties.

Made another pickguard today, This one is for my OLP MM2.
Posted Image
It's not really a job I like to do, if you want to do it right it is rather time consuming and boring to make one.
However, it's a nice simple way to get a instrument with a different look and in the end it is worth the effort.

And today, for the time being, I've made my last pickguard, mint green for my Squier Precision.

Almost boringly traditional, but somehow I like it.

Detail shot for chamfered edge.

That's how it should be done. B)

Practice makes perfect. :)

And I am educated in making stuff, it's not something you learn by trail and error alone.

And one more...
Today this one arrived at my doorstep.
Posted Image
Warwick ProSerie Corvette Std 6 FL

Ever since I build me a fretless six string a couple of years back, on which I was just not able to play decently due to it having a 35 inch scale, I wanted a fretless sixer.

I'm able to play fretless fairly well on a 34" and have been doubting for a long time to build me a new one but with a 34"scale, when all of a sudden these Warwick basses came by at Thomann (big German music store) at a very nice price, roughly about the same as it wold cost me in materials and parts, I did not need to think very long and just bought me one.

For the time being I'm done buying!! (I hope)
