  2. StewMac has them but their shipping prices always make me reconsider.
  3. I've bought longer screws for bridges that have gone on Warmoth builds. I'm currently building up a hardtail Warmoth strat with a Callaham bridge. The Callaham has correct screw heights for a vintage radius neck but doesn't work with the flatter compound radius on the Warmoth neck I have. The playing surface on Warmoth necks seem to sit up higher above the surface of the body than Fender products. Not sure if it's the heel thickness or purely due to the compound radius on the ones I've had. I'm sure they have screws that fit a Sustain Block but I don't know what size they are or if they are cup shaped or pointed.

    Doyle’s coils.

    The Subtone is the baritone version. SuperPro is 25.5" scale.

    The harness components in USA Hamers are as good or better than the Doyle harness. I don't think you'll gain anything other than a lighter wallet replacing the OEM parts. Have you considered Lollar Low Wind Imperials? Sounds like exactly what you are looking for: Low Wind Imperial Based on lower output PAFs often found in vintage 335s, this pickup boasts a brighter overall tone compared with the standard Lollar Imperial®. This results in exceptional definition for any chord voicing and overall great presence for cutting through the mix. You'll also find the bottom strings hold together noticeably longer without distorting than most humbuckers. The low wind is ideal for the occasional Les Paul that sounds darker in the neck position, or for guitars with darker tones in general. This pickup is also a good match for amps that are heavy in the mid-range, or if you're seeking a clear and tight bass tone. Made with Alnico 2 magnets in the neck and Alnico 5 magnets in the bridge that are degaussed to specific levels unique to the neck and bridge positions. Covers are nickel silver. Sold as singles or as sets, and comes in a wide range of cover options. Single conductor braided shield lead wire and 4 conductor lead wire is available. DC: Neck 7.0K, Bridge 7.9K

    So, if I was going to build a bass

    Single cut basses don't seem popular much unless you take into account the newer designs with the upper bout stretched to the 14th or 15th fret; therefore, I think a version of the DC Custom Cobra (perhaps offset waist) with the upper horn ending around the 12th fret like a Jazz bass would be attractive to many players. Scale up the six-on-a-side headstock design to bass size and that could be very sweet visually. 5 string with reverse headstock anyone? Clean strong passive pickups that mate well to an optional, bypassable preamp and a classic bridge option or a modern one.
  9. Indeed I did good sir! Many thanks!
  10. I'll take the Gotoh's if still available.
  11. I was afraid that would be the case. So maybe those other pickups weren't too bad...
  12. I'm installing pickups in a Standard and one is two conductor and the other is 4 - conductor. I'm having trouble getting the 4 - conductor through the channel to the control cavity and I haven't run the 2 conductor yet. I'm guessing it's the friction between the sheathing on the 4-conductor and the switch multi-conductor. What's the best way to get around this? Rub a bit of mineral oil on the 4-conductor? Soap? Margarine? Butter? Thanks!

    #72 in the house!

    Beautiful specs and execution! Izzat a rod magnet '90 in the bridge to go along with the staple 90?
