1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

New to the forum, not to never-ending-projects...

    Hey, my name is Chris, and I do not consider myself a luthier, but I am very interested in the art.
    This one was named toughguy on its first go round, mainly because of the paint and the "pick guard"... I was going for the relic-ed or road worn look, but I felt like I overdid it...
    I used the passive pickups from my Warwick and a Schaller bridge, with Hipshot Ultralight tuners.
    I was just unhappy/bored with it so I took it apart and the wheels start turnin.

    Pics when I can...

    Also, the new direction is:
    slightly carved body
    Bartolini pups and electronics.
    A fret job
    Custom paint job
    Waterfall bubinga pickguard
