  1. 34" scale, 24 fret
    Poplar body, painted black
    Birdseye maple neck, fretboard, knobs, pickup and cavity cover.
    Standard Fender bridge type thing

    I haven't thought of a headstock design yet :meh:

    Reminds me of Ritter. Especially the birdseye stuff... I think there is a white Ritter 6 string like that (white paint and birdseye maple everything else).
  3. Indeed there is. Ritter's a big influence. Along with Marchlewski.

    type thing?
  5. Yeah, type thing. It's not actually a Fender bridge, but a pool deck made small... with my smallulating ray.

    Yeah, I played a Ritter like that at the SIMMM during the Jazz fest. All black (including the back of the neck) and birdseye board and pickup covers. Sweet looking thing.
    Oh and Sal, your bass looks funky, I dig it, although I'd put the pickup a bit farther back.
  7. Merci! It's more Ritter's than it is mine. But, I suppose some Ritters' are more Carl Thompson's than Ritter's.

    I'll be doodling with the placement o' the pup. And I'm now thinking walnut body and gold hardware.
