    Jon, you've got a knack for dreaming up the classiest, most elegant designs! Another beauty awaits. That headstock really intrigues me.

    So you think Jacob will come to the Bass Summit, eh? That would be nice to have a local luthier there.

    When's she due to drop? Seems like you just started her!

    I like that design, especially the headstock. Are you planning on painting it or leaving it woodgrain?
     
  7. Dump the pickguard and you've got a jizzworthy bass, good sir.
     
  8. It's the Ric-of-Death!

    Sweet design.

    I dunno, I think the pickgaurd'll give it some pizzazz. Especially a really cool wood like that burled redwood.

    I say leave as is.

    Thats a great looking bass you've got going there. I love these "bass in progress" threads.

    I will have it oil finished and try to keep it as white as possible to contrast the red...

    The symbol means truth.
