RY Guitar/Jazzmaster Type FRT
2021.4.30: I was looking for a spec like the AC-6 that is easy to use for everyday use, and I found out that Warmoth can make a Jazzmouth bass that is pretty close.
The AC-6 is based on the JAGUAR, so the slide switch and some of the panels are separate, but this is a Jazzmouth bass, so most of the wiring work can be completed with a single pickguard, and the controls are simple.
The jacks are on the side, so one of the jack holes on the front is a tap switch, and the pure PU selector position is a kill switch that turns off the sound only while the switch is held down.
I put a high-pass capacitor in the vol.
Other than the controls and PG, the other features not found on the AC-6 are: no bridge recess, 22-fret maple fretboard, bush neck joint, ash body, and for the first time, I had the top finished in gloss and the side backs in satin.
You can see the bumps on the paint border by touch, but basically it doesn't bother me.
The color order was based on the image of the more flashy PRS Bonnie Pink, but the random quilts were a little too subtle this time, so I had it painted with an emphasis on the grain, resulting in a pink with a slightly dull look.
The result is a pink with a slightly dull look. It is similar to the pink of the Ken model.
I am very grateful to the maker for responding to my request, as it was the first time I had asked for something like this, and it was filled with more elements than last time that would not have been made commercially.
2022.3.6: I changed the pickguard to pearl white for a change.
The controls are more Jaguar-like than last time, and the Vol knob is now closer to the Strat.
The effect of the front and rear PUs and the three mini-switches are exactly the same as AC6, so you won't be confused when you change the guitar.
The kill switch has been moved away from the jack hole, but it is easier to operate than I thought it would be.
