    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).

    Mike Doolin is probably my favorite acoustic builder.
