Well, well, well....

It ain't there anymore! :D

I had already put this one in my cart a couple of times. But I decided to finally push the button. Good bye Christmas money. Totally worth it though. If you custom build this body with those exact options it comes out to $515 USD. I got the body, two pickguards, a couple dozen pickguard screw, two sets of neck screws, some neck plate pads, a sidejack plate, and some string thru ferrules for $495 USD. I have a MIA PB neck with hardware ready for this one. I have stock Hot Rod p/u's and Fender bridge as well but... I'll likely get some EMG Geezer Butlers and a Hipshot A Style to finish it off.

Yep! fully understand it's your and would love to see a pic once you get it and put it all together (Pick Ups, Neck, ect).

FYI I have had a couple of PJ's basses, the best switch combination is a PJ with a Blend Control.

Yep, I thought it was priced right. Glad to see someone here got it. It will make a beautiful bass. Look forward to seeing it when you get it done.

I didn't notice when I posted this body that the neck pickup route allows for either a jazz or P bass pickup. Interesting. I've never noticed that option offered by anyone before. Is it just me having a "Duh" moment?

I've seen it a couple of times before. Especially on the Warmoth "In Stock Showcase" stuff. It allows them to reach a wider audience and ship more quickly. I think it's a great idea. But it only works for basses that are going to have a pickguard obviously. Anything rear routed would need more specificity. It's kind of like the "swimming pool routs" that they do on Strats where they basically leave you room for any pickup config you can imagine.

Thanks for the info. I agree it's a great idea for the reasons you give. I went to their site and it isn't a listed option in the build your own function, unless I missed something. Maybe if you call.

This thing is taking shape. Just waiting on the bridge and new "Corona California" neck plate. I had 4 pickguards to choose from. The others were black, tortoise shell, and black pearloid. This "aged" white pearl one definitely looked the best. (To me...) The bridge will be a Hipshot A style string thru. P/U's are passive EMG Geezer Butlers. Neck and tuners from a Hot Rod American P (w/D-Tuner).

Looking great. Tangent question: Have you ever compared the Geezers to the Quarter Pounders? I use Quarter Pounders in my P basses and I’m *this close* to trying the Geezers in one...

I have the Geezers in 4 different basses now. I've used the QP's in the past though. I'm not a guy who really loves the "modern" sounding bass tones. I always found the QP's to be a little offensive in the punch category. (To my ears anyway.) The Geezers are much warmer but still have a very pleasing, hot-ish output that can make them growl with a tube amp. I also like the way J and P on these work together. Much more useful than some other PJ set ups I've tried. Same goes for the tone control. I feel like I get a much more useful range of sounds from that one little knob. (Er.... that's what... she said..?) :lol:

That's the two cents from my straight ahead rock and roll brain anyway. I'm pretty sure these would be hated by anyone who likes a mid scooped slap tone and active pre-amp etc.. (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

I play straight ahead rock... americana, classic, pop punk... with a pick even! (blasphemy!!!) I've found that the quarter pounders really help lay a solid foundation and punch through the loud, often two guitar rock onslaught and I can dial in EQ with whatever amp I'm using (e.g., SVT, Fender Studio Bass (side note: one of the greatest amps ever!), etc.). I'm also really good at palm muting when I play to dial in the right amount of "natural compression" and "EQ adjustments" with just my palm's pressure on the strings. When we did play shows pre-COVID, I often had people come up to me asking about my "great" bass tone -- and bandmates always comment on my bass tone -- so I guess I have something dialed in right :-) So I've always been hesitant to mess with what is a working formula with my pick ups. But I have found for recording, the quarter pounders can be a bit much. Since I have a P bass I can experiment with, you've convinced me to get the Geezers. I'll be able to compare at home, but the real comparison will come when we can play live again. I'm excited to try 'em - thanks for your detailed reply!

Yeah I hear ya on cutting through the mix. I don't use a pick but I keep my finger nails a little long on my left hand, so I get a sort of hybrid finger/pick sound. I even use my finger nail as a pick and palm mute sometimes too. I move back and forth between a Fender Super Bassman 300 and a Mesa Bass Prodigy. I have no problem finding my place in the mix with 2 or 3 guitar players on stage. Ha... sniff... on stage... (insert longing sigh here).

I'll say it again; one of the nicest body's I've seen recently, and the bass is looking fantastic with that pick guard!
