    Okay, here it is... not quite finished... (still waiting for the wood knobs).

    More than 15 people were involved in the making of this bass. Everything is totally custom. I can't say who gave it to me (yes, this was a free bass from a Nuclear Rabbit fan) - Although, Michael Dolan and his crew did the gloss finish and final assembly (different people will involved in the design and construction) - he came in at the tail-end of this 2 year project.

    I will post new pictures when I have the knobs, with the back and full body shot... I took those just now, but they all came in fuzzy.

    Actually, this is a work of art, not a bass. I wouldn't even dare play that...
