I was originally shopping for a five string Kiesel Bass but the specifications and attention to detail is what prompted me to purchase this: This guitar is painted with Daphne Blue Nitro cellulose lacquer and clear coated with McFaddins clear coat then wet sanded and buffed out to a shine. Body is Swamp ash and Precision neck is maple both from Warmoth. Pickups are made by Curtis Novak and independently controlled by ’62 stack (VT/VT). Tuners are Schaller, nut is Tusq, Straplocks are Dunlop. Bridge is a NOS Badass II. I had the neck professionally leveled/polished/crowned as there was clear coat residue on the frets that I couldn’t remove myself. I replaced the foam pads underneath the pickups, changed out the pickguard (originally white) to a Fender Mint Green and replaced all screws. I also installed a "Zero-Mod" thumbrest. I had my childhood nickname "Janvin" waterslide made from Rothko and Frost. The only bummer is when I received my neck back from my Luthier, the neck was damaged (see headstock picture). The box ends looked completed destroyed. I am in contact with my Luthier to help get an insurance claim on the damage. This guitar plays like a dream. I have the action nice and low. I'm able to blend the pickups to a sound/tone that I like.
