Man, you made a wise decision.  Don't doubt the Squad's skills!  You'd have a hulk sized hand wrapped around your neck before you even get your N-I-N-J-A* suit on.  LOL!

There's a nordy for sale on TB and it has me considering making a bit of a cosmetic change down the road.  Right now it has the standard Sadowsky black aluminum knobs, and it looks great.  But do you think knobs like this would make it look even mo' gooder?

I'll have to kick that idea around sometime.  Right now I'm just ready to get my hands on it as it is!

that bass looks great, but with all that ash I almost feel like it's naked without a pickguard on it or something.

True.  She looks great naked (a statement that said alound would make our wives stop and give us the eye of death), but I keep considering what kind of pickguard I'd want to put on it, if any.  If I did, I'd want a plate for the pots too and the stacked pot would be left hanging since it's not in line with the others.   That is, unless there's one that I haven't seen before that accomodates such a thing.

Those shiny knobs really are talkin' to me tho!

For a bass that classy I would suggest getting a pickguard custom made from a contrasting wood or from the same type wood you have on the fingerboard.  Then you could design it to curve down around ALL your knobs, P-Bass style.

Here's a couple examples.  The 5-string is mine.  The fretless belongs to the guy who designed the bodystyle.



Peace,

Wow man, that's prett tight.  Who did that pickguard for you two?

If I add one, I'd want it to be something to blend the pau ferro with the rest of the body like yours does...

There's still a sizable part of my that is saying "Don't mess with it!"... we'll see when I get it.  I'll defintely leave it as is for a while before I put any serious thought into any changes.

...

The basses were made by elusive Jake Marchlewski.  Jon Clark (Wolfehollow on Talkbass) came up with the design and Jake built the fretless for him.  He also had Stambaugh build a similar single cut version.  I talked to Jon to get the ok to have Jake build mine from Jon's design.  The pickguard was part of the design.  Jake made about a dozen or so basses and then sorta disappeared after his child was born.  Don't know if he's gonna continue as a luthier or not.

Peace,

James

Dude, that's tight!!

It's 2-7 spacing?  I REALLY like the grain on that body, the contrast of the pau ferro and ash, and the curved knob layout!

She's here!

Very first impression... I knew it would be super light, but MAN!  If I didn't know any better, I would have guessed that the case was empty!  Visually, she's impressively elegant, and feels great in hand.

I'm about to run to rehearsal to break her in, I'll be back later with more details.
