That is georgeous... I will say that!
I like the way all maple bodied basses sound and feel... they look nice too.
my wishbass (apart from purpleheart stringers in the neck and a purpleheart fretboard) is all maple
#350 is Schweeet Schounding! and she plays nice, too
My Ped Rapture is 100% maple, although, 3 variants, and it sounds really great. I do like that bass tho. It'd look killer (IMO) with blue fingerboard LED's
my Grabber is all maple. Gonna try flats on her before I give a total review on it
My Hohner B2ADB is all maple and I like the tone, but it doesn't have much body.....
that actually looks alot better than most of his other creations
Thanks. Up close, she's still very "wishy" (brushed lacquer, YUK!), but I'm working on it.
My Ibanez Sr505 is all maple, and I have yet to find a fiver I like the sound of better.
Both my Steinberger XMs have maple bodies, but graphite necks. You can really see the beautiful grain of the maple in this pic:
75% of the basses I've built are a western/eastern combination of maples.
My first Brubaker is all Maple. It's the Blue green one in the middle. Killer bass.
That is SUPER wide string spacing, it looks like it should be a 7 string!
WOW!!! That's like a AAAAA quilt going on those puppies.
By the way, I've recently discovered that all basses look the same on my stereo.
Hey, what's your input on those Q-Tuner pickups? If you don't want to clutter up the thread, feel free to PM it to me...I'm just intensely curious, and it'd be great to hear what a builder has to say on these things.
Personally, I like a lot of contrast in a bass. I love the abalone dots on the board. I'd probably have gone with the same pickup covers but with a highly spalted top rather than just ol' flame.
rics are all maple, minus the fretboard. so i'll say, all tyhe way!
A timely thread...
For you guys with 5-string & 6-string all-maple basses, how's the weight factor? Bearable? Not bad?
To date, the only (virtually) all-maple instruments I've owned are Rickenbackers, though I'm planning to buy an all-maple Carvin LB75 - with a high "C" string - as a specialty instrument to compose some experimental solo material, using a lot of chords & effects processing - so I'll really need the clarity & cut that maple can deliver. Probably a wide, well-padded comfort strap would be in order, eh?
geeze your right
