...ahead that is!!! I've finally scored the wood for the CAD/CAM project bass. It took lots of looking, about 15 design changes/reversals, and suprisingly little money but it's now mine, all mine...haa,haa,haa! I got a beautiful 2" x 8" x 11' long specimen of tiger striped maple. All but about 18" in a few places is usable and that means that there will be plenty left over for something else. This stuff is flamey all across the board and would probably be rated as 3A figuring. So, I'm back into the 2 piece body business. Plans are to stain the finish form with something on the order of a cherry color (as well as the maple will take the stain) and then finish with Tru-oil. :in best Flounder voice: "Boy, this is going to be great!"
