    Hi WW Guys ! :)

    This is my first topic here to introduce my "Streamer CS project" ! 8) (I'm french, sorry for my no very good english :wink: ).


    First of all, i want a 16,5 mm at bridge. Well I've thought a Stage I with the option "20mm to 16,5mm" ;

    Black high polish ;

    An ebony fingerboard ;

    Platinum hardware ;

    And, Side and front blue LEDs (if i have enaough money...)

    First question : what do you think about it ? :roll: of course... :lol:

    Some other questions :

    Are front dots included in the LEDs price ?

    Do you know the number of hours the LEDs work ? And if it can be changed when it's over ?

    Do you think i should change soapbars for single pickups ? (have a preference for soapbars...) ?


    Thanks guys ! :wink:

    Happy to be here !

    hey hey salut!!

    à ce que j'ai entendu dire, les batteries des LEDs ont une durée de vie assez limitée. Et aussi il va falloir que tu paies un petit extra pour avoir les LEDs en avant et sur le coté du fretboard. Ce n'est pas un gros extra puisque ils utiliseront les mêmes pour le coté du fretboard ainsi que pour le devant de celui-ci. De plus, je crois que je garderais les soapbars, ils ont un son très ouvert et punchy (un peu comme un pickup précision). Cela aidera à contrebalancer le son déjà très brillant de la basse. Mais tout cela dépend du son que tu recherches ainsi que du style musical que tu veux jouer avec cet instrument.

    P.S.: Ça va être toute une basse!!!

    salut !

    Ben en fait j'ai vu que le prix était de 800 pour la tranche et environ 900 pour la tranche plus la touche. Je me demandé donc s'il fallait prendre en plus l'option "dots" sur la touche...

    Et tu sais si c'est possible qu'une LED grille ou pas ? ou si c'est l'ensemble des leds qui lache lorsque la batterie est HS ? (d'ailleurs si tu peu m'en dire un peu plus sur le fonctionnement de la batterie, je pensais que c'était une pile qu'il fallait mettre pour le fonctionnement des LEDs...) :wink: Y a moyen de les changer la batterie aprés ?

    bien sûr on peut changer les batteries après. Si je ne me trompes pas elles fonctionnent avec des 9V. Non je ne crois pas qu'il faut prendre l'option dots sur la touche car les dots sont beaucoup plus petits que les cercles habituels des LEDs. Cependant, tu peux prendre une autre option que dots si tu veux des LEDs avec une forme spécifique. Malheureusement , je ne sais pas si des LEDs grillent ou pas. Cependant, je crois que les LEDs ont une grande durée de vie car ce ne doit pas être très facile pour les changer. En gros, n'abuse pas des LEDs et tu ne devras pas dépenser beaucoup d'argent sur des batteries ou bien d'autres LEDs.

    I don't know the name... in fact, the difference between the two high polish you said... this is a solid one on the link, no?

    Ok pour la batterie, merci... je vais voir si je me lance avec ou sans LEDs, elles sont pas données, mais c'est bien sympa ! :)

    P.S : I know there is a specialist on this forum who make some simulations for CS projects... If he reads this topic, a simulation will be welcome :wink:

    yes that's the solid high polish finish :D

    the stain high polish finish is gloss as well, but you can see the wood underneath, like this one:

    this is a solid high polish black color.

    and for the photoshop wizard his name is JanVanHove and he might not being able to photoshop it for you. He said that he's very busy these days.

    ok ok... no problem... I see easily the final result :)

    Ok for the finish... It is a solid one ! 8)

    At the begenning, i was not sure between black or white finish... white like the Lex's one... but without white fingerboard... :? ... Well i think a all black one is very beautiful, with or without LEDs.

    A white one with maple fingerboard... i think it's too much. And a white one with a ebony fingerboard, i think i prefer homogeneity.

    Oh, un autre français !

    For your information, G. Pasquet from Warwick told me that blue LED's are the one that suck the most energy out of the battery... But it's no big deal after all...


    As for LED's, I've been told that you have to choose dot inlays, or special inlays... Dots being the 'basis'....

    Ian - is that MEC or Sims LEDs?

    I learned that the color of the Sims was controlled by a circuit... rather than the LED themselves.

    So if you wanted to change the color of your LEDs later in time, you could change the circuit!

    It's only LEDs today or we can choose LEDs or Sims ? I've seen only LEDs in the list of options...

    Warwick do their own LEDs..

    Sims do them too, but the bass has to be sent to them to do it, and it's more expensive (Warwick will do this if you want).

    ok thanks. If i decide to put one of these options, it will be LEDs... blue or white in fact, i don't know for he moment but I've a little preference for the blue.

    Hey Polluzza, welcome to the forum man!
    You have to pay for extra front dots, yes.
    Your bass will be killer. The nicest SSI I've tried was like yours, only with swamp ash back. It was probably the best slap bass I've played ever. You should think about this option too :)
    Black with blue LED's... woooow!

    If I were you, I'd take black hardware... Would look KILLER with a black finish and blue LEDs.
