    I dig it man. I'm not a headless kind of guy, but that body style is killer.

    Looks pretty good. Much better than the first sketch. I'd see if you could smooth out the transitions between the horns and the lower bouts, make the waist a little wider, maybe.

  7. Good design. Keep us "posted".
     
  8. Maybe it would be interesting to post this in the Luthiers corner section, http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=225608 and get some opinions from those who build, or are thinking of building. Maybe you can get opinions of the body style, thicknesses, pros and cons of the horn size, thickness, etc, and the pros and cons of going headless. The specifics of the actual construction end of putting a new design together. (I would hope that's what that section can be used for.) If you're serious about designing your own bass, get all the info from those who are "in the know" about woods, etc. I'd hate to pick a bad wood or put the grain the wrong way and have a horn that's designed too long, (not yours by the way, just in general), pop off! Check it out.

    just a few questions i have about my design:

    is the neck in far enough for a proper bolt on configuration? this can obviously be changed very readily.

    a secondly, how does it look balance wise (upper horn length)?

    Where's the head?
     
  11. That's just the kind of questions that I thought might be good for the Luthier's corner. But keep posting here, too, I'd like to see the progress. Thanks.

    Very Dingwall-like body shape. Gotta love it!

    Actually, it's more Kubicki than anything else, but with enough differences that I think it could be considered an improvement on the Factor design. I'd go with a head, though...just not that fond of headless designs, but that's really a personal issue. ;)

    Here's a Kubicki pic...I picked the blue one because it's easiest to see.
