    i like the headstock and pickups. But im not really feeling the body but the neck looks ok. Also the 3 band EQ should be pretty nice with that pickup arrangement. Do you get a free one cause you designed it? :cool:

    YES!

    only 1 is build for me! (as far as i know)

    and, it was a designcontest, you cannot win with a standard jazzbass design...

    very true...I like the cut away part by the controls. you should get your name on the headstock or at the 12th fret :p
     
  5. I'd want my name inlayed down the entire fretboard

    I'm not quite digging the pointy ends, but congrats anyway!! It's always thrilling to win something... let alone a bass design contest where they actually build the bass for you!! :hyper:

    You should get an Inlay like JT's. With something like a flame from the nut and body. I think that'd look cool.

    Congrats. It's not my kinda thing, but it looks different! I just don't know about the playability of it when sitting :p.

    How long did it take, and what was your inspiration?

    I really do like that :) It's not quite so "rawk-star" as some of the other shaped basses, and I think the comfort when sitting would be fine, as the lower bout (sp) is in the same place as a regular bass. Congrats :)
