    Beautiful instrument, as always! That body shape is just right,
    the first singlecut that I think look really elegant.

    Just a small niggle; I think it might look better with darker knobs,
    the two shades of red don't really work for me.

    iam making my own bass right now, any tips on shaping the neck, iam making kinda a ct style bass but no scroll, the upper horn is like claypool main bass kinda like a ball. my problem iam having a insane hard time sanding it trying to get it to be round.

    JP, my jaw is on the floor. That bass is simply amazing. Why the switch on bridges? And sound slips! We want sound clips!

    Just to try something else :D

    Oh and, this bridge has only 3 screws located nearer the bottom of the bass so I can hollow the body a bit more!!

    Thanks for the comments guys

  13. Wow! Very nice, JP! It really is cool to watch your work become better and better. You are already so much better than many of the so-called "luthiers" (or, dudes with band saws... ;)) that have sprouted up web sites lately.

    Your attention to detail and sense of style is outstanding! I hope I get the opportunity to play one your basses soon.

    Keep pushing the envelope!

  14. Beautiful, JP! Nice to see it finished. How does the hollow body tone compare with your regular solid body?

    Well, I must say that I'm quite impresses with the sound of this bass!!

    I had already build some hollowbody basses but this one is quite thicker and the change in sound is amazing. I'd have a hard time to define it with word cause I haven't played it enough yet.

    The sound is really full, fat bottom. Salp sound is KILLER even with the preamp set flat.It really as something acoustic in it.

    Peace, JP
