    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!

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

    Maybe it's a Tbird thing, anytime I see anything thunderbird, I gotta look- not sure what were looking at here though

    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".
