    I commisioned Mike Doolin to build a 5 sting acoustic bass. Mike has been great! He is carving the neck to the specs of my favorite Ken Smith bass.
    The woods will be cocobolo back and sides, bearclaw sitka top and B Band electronics. It will be strung EADGC

    doolin makes some seriously sweet guitars. I bet his basses are equally impressive, and by those sketches, he seem to know what he's doing (wedge body and all).

    Richnota,
    I placed the order about a year ago. He started construction last month. Should not be to long now.

    Love the design and can't wait to see the finished article!
     
  8. Mike Doolin is probably my favorite acoustic builder.
