    How do you think 2 F holes on either side of this bass would look? [​IMG][/IMG]

    Not on that bass, but on the right bass I think two F holes would look cool.

    Just say no! IMHO the single f-hole balances well with the knobs and adding another f-hole would look out of place. It looks just fine with one.

    i think double f-holes should only be used on guitars with roughly the same profile on both sides. otherwise, if your f-holes are mirror images of each other, they'll look out of place on the face, and if their put in proper places regarding the face, they wont be mirror images of each other.

    regarding your bass, its prety much symmetrical so i dont see a problem. however, i bet the mirror image of the f-hole already there cuts through a few of your knobs. id do a rethink.
