Getting started on a new bass. This will be one of three basses in my head right now, this one, a tribute to the moon, in it's current state of planning, will have 30 fret markers, 2 jazz bass style pickups that will be my first try at winding with some fun stereo wiring, walnut neck and body with katalox fingerboard and burl maple top.
Let me know which of the two variations below look better to you, I'm leaning towards the first one.
The top will be carved and the burl will be "eclipsed" by the walnut behind it. The dark woods emphasize the darkness of the moon, notably the katalox, which I feel has a certain moon-like quality to it. The crescent moon at the 12th fret will be cut from a light colored Guatemalan tigerwood, sometimes called mora, or cut from pieces of bone.
