    Finished building a bass for a friend for wedding present. . . well, actually, I owed it to him 'cause I started making it for him in college and never finished. Of course, I had to "test" it at a couple of gigs to make sure everything was working right. And boy was it working "right".

    So, before I got too attatched, I gave it away :crying:

    Well, at least I still have #2 to keep me company :bassist: Pat, if you're watching, take good care of #3 for me.

    hey man, my girl and I are getting married in October. :smug:


    That bass came out great! What are the electronics? Did you do the neck and headstock? I like the headstock angle.
