    Just wanted to share with you guys some progress pics of my custom 6 string being built by Talkbass's very own Bass Kahuna. I'll update this thread with pictures as they are provided!

    Heres the rough specs on the bass:

    swamp ash body
    flame koa top, spalted maple back
    maple/bubinga neck
    macassar ebony fretboard (24 fret)
    34" scale, 19mm spacing
    bartolini M56K/C pickups and NTMB preamp
    clear gloss laquer finish

    Some progress pics! Wohoo!
