    Isnt that the custom your getting built for you Whafro?

    Looks nice. :)
  5. What's with the neck? It looks like it was attached backwards.....and it's too small. Or am I missing something?

    haha.... thats not the neck...

    thats a scrap piece of wood that the body is hung on for painting/finishing...

    so it can dry, and can sprayed on all sides.

  7. I see. Shows what I know about bass making :rolleyes:

    That's what I thought too! I figured it must be another one of those "Look what some moron is trying to sell on Ebay" threads.

    Minus that misunderstanding, it's a sweet looking body!

    That top is coming out killer! Wait until you see it in person, the picture does not do the finish justice. Must be the novice behind the camera :ninja: :ninja: ;)

    Cocobolo, right?

    That is a beautiful bass! I would love to see a fretless diamondwood fingerboard attached to it.:D :bassist:

    I love that top. Wonderful choice. It's kind of like the evil twin to my fretless. You just gave me big time GAS for another one, thanks so much.

    Yup cocobolo.

    I still take full responsibility for the existance of this bass. If it werent for me b*tching about my Roscoe GAS, this thread would not exist :(

    I like that colour-tone. Really nice, I can almost smell the wood.
