    I have a build underway by Tom. It is a bass design that I have wanted for sometime now.

    You brave, brave soul.

    Actually, I really hope that it works out. We get better with practice, listening to criticism, and learning from our mistakes.

    Is he still selling on eBay? I also have a PM for you.

    Yes, he is - this is where I found him. I read some good info and decided to give it a go. I did some more searches and I did find a not so favorable thread on here that I had not seen before. I am not going to judge now - I will see how it turns out. It has been sometime since that thread and hopefully as you say, quote: "we get better with practice, listening to criticism, and learning from our mistakes".

    You have a PM for me? It has not shown up yet...

    Based on some of what I saw, not more than a year ago, he had a LOT to learn. Best of luck to you and your bass.

    I was late on sending it, because I suck and forgot to click "send."

    Update: Happy & anxious:hyper:! I have received updates (pics) as Tom goes along with the build. Communication is excellent! He has really nailed the idea I had "exactly" only based on a video of the bass (for the body -he really captured it better than I thought!) and a pic of the head with a slight modification.
