    Thanks Geoff.
    I have built the bass but I am having trouble getting the pictures to up-load.

    Man, if everyone keeps makin' 'em so nice I'm going to have to rethink my dislike of single cuts. She looks great, Skelf.

    GREAT looking bass! I think it's interesting you went with a bolt-on design. Many singlecuts are either neck-thru or set neck.
    Any more projects in the works?

    I have a 4 string with a walnut body and lacewood front and back.
    A 5 string mahogany body goncalo alves front and back.
    A four string mahogany body with padauk front and back
    The two 4 strings are the same style the 5 different.
    I will also start on a new single cut to put right the couple of things that I am not happy with on the one above. It is a prototype to see if the design will work most of it worked really well but it is slightly neck heavy so I am not happy about that.
