Building my own guitar!

That is awesome. ;-D ;-D

I'm saving up my money to buy one of these w/o the pickguard and in the tobacco sunburst. ;-D I realize it's not a guitar but being such tinkerer I'd love to try building my own if I could find the parts so I'm not completely off topic. :-]

Nice Active electronic pickups huh?

Bass is fun.

I need to get a cheap one.

Anyways I hope that my neck fits but I'll get a sweet graphite or ebony neck if it doesn't ;-D
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Yeah .. I don't know if I want active or not. The cheapo Squire P-Bass I have now has passive pickups but comparing a Squire P-Bass to a Fender Jazz is like apples and oranges so I'm still up in the air on that one.

I'm a total noob, but definitely. ;-D I got this one with a maple headstock from the local guitar shop a while back. It only set me back $250 and I love it. :-)

Anyway, didn't mean to hijack your thread. :*)

I thought about that (and probably will eventually) but I really liked the sound of the higher end Fender Jazz's in the shop (even if I did have to play them upside down :-b) better than the one I got. I also didn't have $1500 to drop on a good one at the moment. :-[

Anyway ... topic derail over ... for now. :*)

Its cool I don't mind derailing topics even if they are my own.

1500 bucks wow.

The PRS I want one day is 3500$
