hey here is the first one let me know what you think
i designed everything my self
Nice Bass, Very unusual. The Black dots that run across the top are those actual holes?? I couldn't help but notice the Carvin Combo in the background. How do you like it and would you recommend it to others. I've never actually talked with anyone who owned one of those and I have often wondered about that combo?
yes it is a semi hollow. the woods are
body: brazilian cherry/ flamed maple/ mahogany
neck : purple heart, maple and cherry
fretboard: zirecote (sp?)
Lane poor pickups: Humbucker in bridge and jazz in neck
aguilar OBP-3 preamp
these we taking at the shop of the guy who built it the combo does sound nice though. never played it out just in his shop.
the idea for the holes came to me in a dream believe it or not
That Sir is a very NICE BASS!!!! i Like the shamrock!!!
Mite do that sometime!!!
Amazingly ugly bass.
^ this guy must have some really hot basses! I like it! who made it?
Yes, I have many great basses but what does that have to do with anything? If you re-read the original post you'll find that it says "let me know what you think". I did as he asked.
^sorry i didn't mean to offend.
Nice! That's a clever idea with the holes, adds a fun touch.
But....need more info. Who built it? Scale length? String spacing? Tone? Playability?
Do you have any pictures of the back?
that is different for sure! Pretty unique! How's it play and sound?
The holes are kinda like Chris Benavente puts on his semi-hollow basses.... and kinda like Ovation puts on some acoustics
That's a pretty big SC The holes are a nice touch, but IMO it would have been nicer if the graduation of the holes were greater. Semi-hollow... mmm... Specs!! Soundclips!!
I congraduate you on taking the effort to build that bass. Not my cup of tea, but as trying to design my own bass I can appreciate the effort that you put into it. Enjoy and let the creative juices flow. Congats again on your finished project.
The single cut side looks oversized, doesn't look like it would sit well on a strap... But as long as you like it seems interesting!
Looks like a great bass. Can't say I like the body shape that much, but I love the holes. 'Tis cute.
Thanks. I didn't want to have to be the only one.
You shouldn't say anything until you've made your first custom bass.
