Another bass guitar that I built (this was actually the first bass that I built). Again using a pre-made neck, hardware and electronics from Carvin. It is a passive bass (no electronic pre amp or active electronics) and is wired up using two Jazz Bass pickups.
The body wings are made of solid Black Walnut. The neck is Maple with an Ebony fingerboard. The bass is finished with 5 coats of Tung oil. I do not fill the pores in the wood because I like to see and feel the texture of the walnut.
A very sweet sounding bass that pretty much matches the tones of my Fender Jazz bass.
