    Really nice. I rarley see a body style that differs from the norm that catches my attention.
    That is certainly one of them.

    Excellent Job.

    definitely an original look there with all the angles.

    Is it Ok for the strings to pass so close to the tuning posts?

    Yes, it's ok for them to pass as close as you want as long as they don't touch. I have them spread so far to make truss rod adjustment very easy; you never have to fight with the strings to adjust that truss rod.

    Umm, isn't that name of violinmakers from Cremona, I don't know what you mean. I'm not down with the lingo, haha. What does that mean? I think that went over my head.

    Thank you all very much, for your compliments and input.

    Nice work man! i really dig that style! I swear my next bass will be a custom... that would rock. Too bad i probably couldn't afford it at all.

    Awesome job man, i reaaaallllyyy dig that body style!

    Peace,
    Scott
     
  17. VERY nice man:)
    I don't really like the chunk out of the upper horn or the body, but other than that I am drooling all over this bass:)

    Hey Matt,

    That's got an EMG-BQC preamp in it and an EMG-45DC pickup. I had to rewire the BQC to fit in the body though, the board use to be mounted to the pot. and I had to take it off and hook it up with wires so I could lay the board down, the body is only 1-1/4" thick.

    Thanks,
    -Mike
