    Awesome man. Inlay isn't my style, but very well constructed none the less.

    Very nice! The bass almost looks as though it's finished in gold and bronze flakes :)

    Once again a beautiful job. And that shape is still great. How many is that now? Nice purpleheart body accent, but still 8 lbs.

    Thats Pretty sweet. But I think you should save up for a Really nice Digital Camera so you could start up a website with Pro level Pics of Pro level basses. :)

    That's some fantastic work. I really like the backside pic of the multi-laminate neck.
