    I decided I hated the neck dive so I rebuilt this Thinderbird making it a oversized semi left handed model played right handed...they do not make a left handed...BUT I did!

    Man, you just can't start a thread with THREE exclamation points about a bass and then not have any pics. You big tease.

    I'm a sucker for an interesting lefty bass. There just aren't enough of them. I'd love to see a pic.:bassist:

    I'm not sure what's interesting our state more, the prospects of seeing this exciting Thinderbird or that it was started by someone named CatfishPlatter. Mmmmmmm, catfish.....:bag:

    Another Texan here wanting to see this new bird. But Catfishplatter you really didn't need to build a new bass to stop neck dive, simply install some Jim Dunlop strap locks. That worked perfectly for me and my bird.

    On another note, I've been thinking about starting a new band and naming it "Neck Dive".
