Love that gallery too.
Let me know when you do and I'll swap (or just add) a new photo or two of your bass.

I gave him grief the other day about not finishing his updates. It's pretty amazing to see some of the crazy stuff he does.

Yeah, Chris seems like the natural choice for that kind of project. Exotic wood thunderbird with improved balance, tone and playability - should be awesome. And he's done a few in that vein already.
Exotic wood Bootsy style Space Bass:
Exotic wood Flying V:
Exotic wood Tele:
Exotic wood Jazz:
Exotic wood Ampeg Scroll:
So, back to the entertaining build I mentioned earlier. Chris was originally going to start my hollowbodies in late October or early November. But then he had a client who absolutely needed some instruments for a big showcase at the beginning of the year and Chris asked if it was okay to bump me back a month and I said sure.
The project was to build 3/4 size SGs for a dad whose twin sons are doing an AC/DC tribute band. Apparently the dad got nowhere trying to contact Gibson about the project and someone recommended Chris. Anyway, here are the guitars Chris built and below is a video of the brothers performing. V Squared doing "Back in Black"
Oh, the indignity of being bumped back in the queue for a pair of 8 year olds. I told Chris he'd have to add some extra mojo to my basses to make up for it.
