Greetings my TB brothers and sisters. Sharing my latest build with you. I built this for my friend Tim who I have known since 5th grade. He lives in Indiana and came out to California to visit me a couple years ago, and that's when the idea for this bass got started. The original idea was that he wanted a "Beatle Bass" but with five strings and fretless, and it just kind of took off from there and we ended up with a body shape much closer to a real violin than a Hofner The scale is 32". The pickups are SD soapbars. The tuners are Hipshot ultra lights. The bridge, tailpiece and jackplate I made from a nice piece of reclaimed ebony I scored off e-bay. It has stacked pots, volume on top, tone on bottom. The neck is purple heart and maple, and the body wings are basswood. It's neck through and chambered. It ended up weighing. 9 1/2 lbs.

Hope you like it.
