    According to Cam I'm getting a pretty good deal. Good enough for me!

    That neck looks yummy!!!

    Definitely darker than the roasted maple on my Spector and after playing roasted maple it’s hard to go back, for me anyway, knowing the options exist out there.

      I've got an unfinished roasted maple neck on one of my Warmoths, and I keep thinking that I need to replace ALL my necks with that stuff

        That looks pretty good. I saw a SSS Charvel for sale locally that looked like that. Even though I'm a Heretic of the first order, I may end up with a roasted maple neck one day.

            What odd logo placement. Killer looking bass, though.

              Agreed on all points.

                Those do look good. I haven't seen one in the wild yet, but, you know, pandemic.

                  Little known fact, that bass has the reverse P pickup because I carpooled with the design engineer for Charvel for 4 years I said yeah man you have to do it like classic jackson/charvel which were some of the first to do reverse P pickups. couple years later this thing comes out. I text him and congratulate him on a job well done

                    Did Jackson/Charvel do it before Spector?

                      Those Charvel roasted maple necks are sooooo goddamn incredible. Absolutely love them! Nice score!

                        no idea to be honest. a lot of the stuff in the 80s was designed and released so close together its hard to see the lineage of some of those features.

                          I think Spector did it in 1979 when the NS-2 was introduced. Not sure if anyone had reversed the P pickup before that… maybe Alembic might have?

                            THAT'S ALL I CAN SEE NOW

                            But thankfully, I won't be able to see it while playing

                                Volume and Pickup Balance are the big ones. Small ones are EQ; T/M/B.

                                  I was close, I thought 2 volumes, then T/M/B...

                                    Turns out the Volume knob is a push/pull to go from active to passive!

                                        Alembic was mostly doing custom pickups, AFAIK. Spector's the earliest reverse P format I've seen. The earliest Charvel basses I've seen were just straight-up Fender types. The early Jackson basses had a reverse P layout, but those didn't really start until 1984 (there might have been a few made in '83).

                                          When did BC Rich start doing those Mockingbird basses with reverse P and double reverse P?

                                            I don't remember seeing those before the '80s. I've seen some '70s basses with Ps, but the usual way.

                                                Well, I found the truss-rod wheel was stuck when I noticed the fretboard was FLAT , so I had to pop the neck off, which was an excellent reason to change the strings . I dropped some 45-100's on (it had a 120 on it, yikes my fingers), gave the neck some relief, and now it's a screamer!
