interesting pickup placements. the bridge looks closer to a MM sweet spot. Neck pickup far north toward the neck.
Got any soundclips? love that neck, its gorgeous!

Beautiful build! Is it heavy? I'm using a 3/4in bubinga top on my current build and it's some very dense stuff!

It's literally an anchor. There's a reason that all of the Warwick brand bubinga basses were always tiny in size... lol.

Thank you so much! i love it too, and with every seasonal change it gives off more syrupy smell.

Sound Clips to follow.

I have to ask but how many of the 24 frets are usable?

All of em! Hah. I'll make sure to get em in the sound clips.

Curious though why the cutaways are not more ergonomic.

I've got those 7 foot-guy limbs and fingers, no reach issues thankfully. Weight would be the first of any ergo concerns.

I see if it works for you that is the main thing...
