Hi Lukasz.

The bass sounds decidedly good (although I didn’t fully understand why there’s a slightly misaligned joint at the headstock end of the neck) .. which pickups and electronic have you installed in it?

Hi mate,

Thanks! It's normal way to do it (they perfectly match).

Pickups:

Entwistle JBX Pickup (Ceramic) Designed By Alan Entwistle Neck Position

Wilkinson WOM 4 Pickup MM Type Bridge Position

Electronics: passive electronic circuit (push - pull, parallel system).

Ok, if your reply is this .. I wanted tu buy it but this reply isn’t adequate from someone aspiring to be a builder.

 

Maybe I misunderstood you, but I thought about cutting neck of angle of 13 degrees what's normal way to do it.

I think I done it right.

The yellow wood (don’t know which kind of) stripes at the top joint do not align perfectly .. it’s clearly shown on the enlarged picture.

Thats why I asked why the joint? It makes the build more complicated and the results, as in this case, may not be perfect.

This doesn’t mean that the bass sounds very nice and the bass-playing style of Lukasz is super groovy.

I would shape the edges, however; they are too squared.

For the price, anyway ..

See my previous post and open your eyes or use glasses if required .. this site is unbelievable .. ok ok the joint is perfect and the alignment of the clear wood stripes above and below it perfectly match, I was under drugs and could not see the picture clearly ..

then, on top of this, is normal to have this kind of longitudinal and horizontal lamination in a multi-wood neck, yes, it’s the standard .. every body does it .. Fender, MM, Rickenbacker, G&L, Sandberg, Warwick, Sadowsky, Elrick, Alembic, Roscoe .. everybody, everybody … need somebody in my opinion to help them ..

Hey why not stop trolling this thread and let us decide if we like the bass or not.

Just a thought.

Yeah yeah that’s how it usually goes on BassChat .. you seem not to see an inch in front of your site-based fanclub .. if you like something it’s not for me to tell you not to like it .. but nobody can’t deny the fact that there’s a slight misalignment in the two lips of the joint, of course, judging from the attached picture .. full stop .. having said that, unfortunately, this site demonstrates once and for all that there’s no room for saying anything that’s not aligned with what a wide array of mutual UK-based acquaintances has decided that must be said … forget my posts thus.

Best wishes for the sale.

Bye.

Personally, I think it's a great looking bass and have seen worse examples of 'slight' issues in boutique work. I had a £3k+ bass a few years back and could faintly feel the stripes in the thru-neck.

 

It's easy to criticise someone else work (yes I can see the misalignment) but given the fact that Lukasz is asking a similar price for a hand-made bass as what you would expect to pay for a CNC, mass produced Indonesian bass, I think whoever buys this is getting a great bit of kit. It sounds great as well!

 

It has my vote.

I don’t want to criticise the work of anybody .. for the price it’s more than ok but to say that I saw FOO FIGHTERS it’s something I can’t accept .. strange that an honest reply didn’t come from Lukasz .. I’ll go and check the maple fretboard one
