    if the body was shaped better ya. looks like a ken smith and a conklin combined. with a warwick and cort head stock
     
  3. It's got potential.

    Try building off from what you have there.

    Hehe it's funny because I got the rough cut from a Ken Smith body (and neck) but the headstock is somekind of Roscoe hybrid. I see the Cort resemblence and the offset Warwick thing was intentional, I've always liked that on both Warwicks and Jerzys:)

    Are you crazy????:p
     
  6. its hard to judge by a poorly drawn picture, but just because you cant draw doesnt mean you cant build a bass

    plus it looks like every other bass out there?? :confused:

    It reminds me of a conklin, but now that you mention it it does look like a smith/conklin hybrid.

    It has a bit of a Celinder Custom in it, the horns i mean
     
  15. I think it's ok, but i would move the neck to the longhorn side a bit.... there you have an Anthony jackson uncentered neck, wich is really comfortable for playing in sitting position, and when you're up too.

    OR make a bigger cut out of the lower horn.... This upper/lower looks so unsymmetrical it is UGLY!
