    Solid walnut body? Why, who'd do such a crazy thing?

    ...oh yeah. We would.

    ;)

    Absolutely, and I recommend it - not as heavy as you'd think, and sounds fantastic.

    On my "short list" of basses I will own is a walnut-bodied 5 string fretted.

    I like it so much, here are some photos of the floor in the house the missus and I are hopefully moving into next week, after 13 months of construction:

    fwiw walnut is my favorite body wood, and one of my favorite top woods. And while we're at it, it makes a pretty nice neck too.

    *cough* chambered walnut body *cough*

    Nice Gard! ... but when you going to put some furniture in that house?! :eek:

    You could have carved it out of a solid block of wood in 13 months!
