  1. I just about have the neck all finished. I just need to put some fret markers on it. The body is in the works now. I post some more pics when I get some.
     
  2. i bet it's a 6 string :p I really neat looking 6 string at that
     
  3. just a couple more pics.
     
  4. what kind of wood is on the headstock?
     
  5. Your really close.

  8. you too are really close, But not the answer I'm looking for.
    ;)
     
  9. Does nobody recognize the shape?
     
  10. An excellent looking one, that's for sure..
     
  11. Ding Ding Ding.... you are the winner. LOL
    ;)
     
  12. Looks a bit like a Carl Thompson... I'd guess that based on the pictures and your GAS list. :)

    edit: wow, too late. That's what I get for opening a bunch of threads and then doing something else, hehe.
     
  13. one more pic of the neck.

    It looks very nice, but it appears that the strings strung on the top tuners may make contact with the middle tuner posts.
     
  16. I've seen carls do the same thing, But it might miss it, barly. I don't think it's a big deal.

    Naw, no big deal.
    I wasn't trying to be negative either, just making an observation, hope you didn't take it the wrong way.

    Great job on the headstock. Best knockoff headstock yet. I thought it was a guitar for a second. The fretboard doesn't look big enough to be a bass. Really close string spacing?

  19. not at all.
