    Some of you saw the relic Telecaster Bass I did the other day. That was a "day project", but here's one I'm taking a bit more time on. I still haven't figured out whether I'll finish this one up, sell the body, or whatever, but I'll probably just build it out and see how she sounds.

    This started out with a 3lb, 14oz feather weight ash Jazz body that I picked up. I've been working on my blonde finishes, and the grain (for the most part) was nice and seemed to lend itself to a translucent finish. Anyway, enough chatter, and on with the pics !

    P.S. - I'll try to take better pictures tomorrow in the daylight !

    Happy Easter everyone !

    I'll take some more pics tomorrow and then maybe do updates with hardware and neck shots as they go. :)
