Presenting the Desert Pixie!

This bass is my second creation; the first I made with the help of my dad, but this one was all mine.

First, some specs:

Swamp Ash body (Thanks to Guitarfrenzy for the stellar blank) with matching wood cavity cover

1/4" Flame maple cap

Birdseye on Birdseye Warmoth P-Bass Neck with Stainless Steel Jumbo frets (plays -way- smooth!)

2 G&L MFD Bass Humbuckers

Gotoh GB-7 Tuners

No-name bridge (from Guitarfetish, I think, on eBay)

DR Black Beauty strings, gauge 45-105

The whole thing was finished with automotive polyurethane by a local body shop.

Controls:

V-V-T, with a 1 meg tone pot and 500k volume pots

North/Both/South coil selector for each pickup (the black switches)

Momentary kill switch (the silver one)

Tonally, this bass is relatively versatile; it sounds good for most applications, with the exception of really clean hi-fi stuff (a la EMGs), but sounds exceptional for funk slap and metal applications. It's got a big, chunky sound that's bright but not overly piercing, and cuts through the mix quite well. I don't have sound clips for lack of a suitable recording device, but if I can scrounge something up by the end of the month (and find a place to host it) I'll get the links on this entry.

So, I guess there's nothing left but to show you the pictures. These were taken with a Canon Powershot SD300, 4.0 megapixel camera.

The full front:

The front of the body:

The back--the matching control cover was not cut from the same piece of wood, but from a cutoff, and yet the grain matches surprisingly well:

Here's a photo of the Desert Pixie with its big sister, the Forest Pixie (my first build):

Enjoy, and if you have any questions, please address them to my build thread, found here.
