    Why not? That’s called customizing. We don’t know if this delivers different and usable sounds or not.

    Ya know, I am so tempted (when money allows) to get a custom Thumb done with the old Schaeller 3D bridge. I just loved that bridge when I first used one to mod my first bass. Solid, great amount of mass, and pretty adjustable for spacing, intonation, and height. It's actually one of the mods I still need to do on my RB. That JD brings the feeling that bridge brought to my original Squier II P Bass back to me and what it did for sustain and overall sound.

    JD's are very special. So lucky to have my sweet Stella. It just amazes me how thin and small it is, yet feels and plays so damn solid. It's unreal and makes me giddy with excitement every time I play it.

    And yes, Cliffy. Really like the old Schaller bridge.

    Does anyone know if the 2017 BO Pro Series Team Built bodies are Ovangkol?

    And if they are, when did they stop using Bubinga?

    Edit: Got it figured out, they are Ovangkol

    Still wondering what year they switched from Bubinga to Ovangkol

    Well here it is!! I've been desperate for a NT thumb since I laid hands on my B.O around a year ago. I knew I wanted to try something as old as possible in either 5 or 6 and whilst I really wanted a 80's thumb the cost of shipping, exchange and taxes to Australia is just crazy. So I decided to purchase this monster!!

    1994 Thumb NT6 with Seymour Duncan's and the 3 band 18v MEC pre.

    It is incredible... very different beast to my bolt on.. richer and more polite and well rounded but still that in your face mid presence that's unmistakably thumb. I hope I can coax a slight bit more snarl out of it once I'm more used to it but I'm truly very happy a prefect match with the bark monster B.O lol. it's looks are darker and much more deep than the bolt on too but all in all its just a monstrous beast!!
