    its a p bass.
    fretless with lines, poly finish
    the body is very thin. extremly light.
    8 bolt on.
    barts.
    it has 2 outputs. high/low treble cut
    yellow body. black pickguard (same as from basist from the band thursday)

    almost a year in the making.

    it has a really full tone. personally i think its way to punchy. and way to bassy.

    i play my yamaha thru a guyatone bottom blaster and an ampworks modeling effects.

    playing this bass thru the same effects seems pointless. doesn't seem to do much. :confused:

    lil bit of neck dive. but thx to you guys the straps are located aside from their traditional spots. its nice.

  3. Note on neckdive: reduce size of headstock bling :D

    Is that really an arched body? That's cool!

    How does one go about getting that arch in the body? Just a lot of carving out and checking every few seconds I suppose?

    I have to say that that bass is awsome! I have always loved the look of the arched bodies. How did you do that? I love the colors too. Where did you put the strap locks?
