I have changed mind about the head stock. Before there where black walnut ears on the head stock. I did not like them, to plain in grain and color.
So I cut them of, not totally there is 3 mm to 2 mm at end of head stock. Then I thought why not do the same as I will do in the body. So I put an padouk laminate next to the walnut. (the body will also have this pattern in the wings.)
Also I have changed my mind about the body core being black walnut. Again the walnut is to plain in grain and color. And I have been searching high and low for other walnut.... then I thought why not shedua/ovangkol? It is heavy but the body is going to be really thin, and the core even thinner of course. So I went for the ovangkol. It has got a great pattern and flames in it. It will compliment the bass very well I think:
Made the veneer for the headstock. Padouk 1mm and on top of that macassar ebony 0,6 mm. Front and back headstock will have these veneers.:
