At one point in time I had 3 basses (and 5 guitars) at my disposal. Over the last 7ish years that has been sold off to 0. My exwife finally dropped off my box of bass parts that I had purchased nearly 15 years ago (I'm 41 now and I was in my mid 20s when I got all this together) and had been in storage in Texas (I live in Washington St) this whole time and never completed (long story that involves joining the Navy and pcsing away from my parts lol). So NOW I can finally get this built and have a bass to play again! When I originally ordered everything I spared no expense (young and dumb I guess) so it is all genuine Fender parts and All Parts body and neck. The original neck is a fretless and since this is going to be my main for a while I ordered a bound and inlayed neck on ebay ($40!). The new neck is pretty nice for the price (a bit orange but I can work with that). Anyway this is where it stands now. The body still needs a ton of sanding and prep before I can do more primer and paint.
