    Now there's some cool detail work! I like the spalty rosette, that's starting to become a trend in high end acoustics these days it seems.

    That is simply amazing! I am in an acoustic bass type of GAS mood so this hit's the mark! Would you be able to post clips?

    Stunning! :eek:
     
  7. Beautiful! A little pointier than I personally prefer, but a really really nice instrument nonetheless. I particularly like the fingerboard binding, the character in the spruce top (that is spruce, right, or is it Port Orford cedar?), and the sorta violin effect on the back of the neck. Is that cocobolo on the back and sides?

    That's a really beautiful acoustic bass, man. Sigh..., someday..., maybe..., as soon as I can come up with a good reason for the wife that I "need" another bass!

    Mike Doolin has long been my favorite acoustic builder. I am very jealous. Beautiful bass dude!

    Unreal.
    I'am a big fan of Doolin's work.
    Hope it sounds as nice as it looks?
    Can you say GAS.

    Richard,
    Yes it is a bearclaw sitka spruce top with cocobolo back and sides. I can't wait to receive it! Thanks to all for the comments........Ted B
