    ... and it seems my Mac Ebony topped F bass will actually be a reality come New Years' - it will have a matching heel plate -

    Wow, that's really looking nice. I love Mac Ebony tops and boards. The Birdseye board is beautiful as well Is your FB stained? It looks to be darker than the typical Maple boards. Looks like a keeper! ;)

    WOW!! That is beautiful! Can't wait to see it when it is all done. :cool:

    I have exchanged a couple of emails with George in the past couple days about getting my BN6 refinished. The price he shot me is quite reasonable for a complete refinish job, I thought. Now to decide on what color I want it........ :help: :confused:

    thanks, pleoples...
    the board is birdseye maple that has been stained, i believe... but i don't know how stained... i think it was naturally pretty dark to start with- the body is one piece Ash
    the top will be much darker and richer once finish is applied

    If I order an F, I'm going for that neon burst. If the border is included in the upcharge, that would be a major bonus.

    I don't eally like the look of the top wood, you can tell that it's nice wood, but something about the grain...irks me.

    Hey Adrian, when it's finished just slap a ramp between the pickups and send it on out to the east coast for me........That'd be great! :D

    That's far too beautiful for my tastes. I couldn't do it justice.

    Quite nice, though.
