    So do you have any build details?

    It's a bass. :)

    This one is another rescue. Alder body with twice the number of pickguard screw holes than when it left the factory in '71. It may have been Olympic White originally but there was not much left to prove it. It will not be white when I get it back. The neck has a nice rosewood board and the tuners on this one will be from my favorite tuning machine company, Hipshot. Pickups are AG4P's with a grounding plate.

    Sweet bass. You wouldn't happen to be generating some funds for the Sadowsky SA200? :D

    No, this is one I have had for a few years now, although I'm tempted to do a new build.

    How about you? Anything new in the works?

    Yup. Progress pic may come this week. Lot's of delays on this one but he's a one-man shop and life happens. But, as you know, it is worth the wait! Not like I don't have other basses to play. In fact, to fill my "need" for new, I built a real nice P, based on an MJT Sherwood Green body.

    Looks great! What did you have done aside from the finish? Do you have any before pictures as well?
