OK, time for an Addict bass, dont you think? I do 🙂
Of course these are Addict designed, original body and headstock shapes (and we like em a lot!) but who are we kidding?
This was originally planned as a straight J-bass, but I’ve revised my thinking and have decided to make it a PJ bass. Best of both worlds
Below is an example of the traditional color scheme I’m shooting for when finished
Parts and materials gathering time!
Swamp ash body blank. Again, keep in mind this will actually have a P bass pickup in the neck position
2-way spoke wheel truss rod, macassar ebony fretboard, plus maple and wenge boards, and some ferrules
Hipshot 4-string, A style bridge
I draw up the design in my CAD software, and then send the plan off to Chris Westhoff at LR Design+Build, who cuts the templates for me on his CNC machine.They do awesome work 🙂
I have a separate routing template for the P bass pickup.
the little chrome skulls emblem is there because…well…skulls!
