First shot of the back contouring and the ebony heel laminates...
I got an estimated shipping date from Cliff that's only a few weeks out. So exciting!!
Looking real good man! I love the transition between rough cut to sanded.
Wow, your Myrtle top reminds me of fine brush strokes in a painting.
I see what you mean, with the slight flame and spalting...
Heel carving is finished--looks amazing!
Final contouring and sanding just about complete. Not too much longer!
Final setup. I love how the finish brings out the subtle flame in the spalted Myrtle top! And the two custom Nordstrand Bigman pickups look rather imposing...
So excited to share the first full pic, and can't wait to see the rest of the bass when it arrives!
That looks so good. I love that he used a full top and not a cutout at the end of the neck. That could be my favorite singlecut shape anyone has produced.
It's definitely one of my favorite shapes, too--rather different than the typical singlecut.
The full top is an option, and with some woods it might not have made so much difference, but this myrtle was asking to be shown as much as possible!
Thanks! I can't wait to see the rest of it!
That's a stunning bass! What is the control layout?
It's a Nordstrand 3-band. The two controls on top are volume and blend, then the Bass/Mid/Treble (not sure which order they're in), then passive tone on the end. The switches are series/parallel/outer coil for the two Notdstrand Bigman pickups.
That's a nice palette of tones. Is the pickup placement close to 60/70s J for the bridge and P for the neck?
Nope, the neck pickup is back a little from the Fender position, and both pickups are much wider than Fender. It's actually more like standard positions for the Wal or G&L, which puts the outer coils about the same locations as my Curbow 6.
I just got another photo at a different angle from Cliff. It looks like the flame is much more dramatic than I expected--I'm amazed!
