    That is TB user nate 0 jt's bass. I can't help but think back on what Dave P himself just said in a recent thread: just remember the old saying :"Be careful what you ask for, as you just may get it!"

    Also in the For Sale section on this site: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=31543
  5. yeah, I think he had a problem with neck diving. he made that shape himself, and without an extened upper horn on a 6 string.....:(

    I posted a couple weeks or so ago in a thred he made about neck diving. I said to go to bunnybass.com in the tips section. they had some really good tips for neck/head heavy basses. but, I guess it was too late.

    you guys have all mentioned neck diving.. anybody know about the weight of purpleheart? i've only seen it used in neck laminates or for fretless/fretted fingerboards on Elrick and Roscoe basses... never for a body. it seems odd matching it with walnut. wouldn't something heavier like bubinga or zebrawood help stabilize the balance?

    Actually purpleheart is quite a dense wood. It is used for fingerboards, which would seem to substantiate what I've read, as you don't usually (ever) see lightweight woods used on a fingerboard. However, if there isn't enough of the wood it really can't counterbalance a heavy or even not so heavy neck/headstock.

    yeah, it's a really dense wood. purpleheart is great for fretless. i guess my question had more to do with the mass of the wood itself and if a heavier body wood might have made a difference....
