    Hi Bass friends,

    Let me present you the crazy bass JP and Fred are building for me.

    It's a plume 6 bass with great redwood top and perfect flame mapple body. Wengue for the neck and pau fero as fingerboard.
    Tuning will be standard for 6strings.

    As you can see, it's a multiscale bass, probably one of the first one in France.

    Now, let pics speak !


    Work in progress :







    Well, I love this project. The redwood top is killing me and it s only the first step of oiling.

    What do you think about my beauty?

    I commented on the absolutely amazing top in the 'Show your Gallery Hardwoods Wood' thread before I saw this thread. Very, very cool!

    What a great looking bass. My next one'll be a multiscale fretted 6 so this interests me a great deal. What scale length is the B and the C strings on yours?
