    If you haven't seen my work, please check the photos on the Facebook page in my signature line.

    Here are the bodies that are coming down the line so far, and I expect to add a few more basses shortly.

    All are front bound with belly cuts except the double-bound TetraSonic.

    I will collaborate with prospective purchasers on finishes and other details if there is interest, otherwise I'll let the muse inspire me...

    Will you ever offer precision or jazz body styles?

    I'm going to put these up as a silent auction...$500 reserve / $895 Buy It Now shipped in the US lower 48.

    I'll post photos and specs of each in the classifieds in the next week or so, but the basics are US made bodies, nitro finish, AllParts necks, Lollar TV Jones or Fralin pickups, CRL, CTS, Deluxe Gator case, etc.

    Yes, I'm giving them away!!!
