    Mine's 'scheduled' to be done around August, but we'll see:)

    I do love the top. I'm having a burl on the top of mine as well.

    Congrats again man!

    Sounds great...can't wait to see the finished product!
  12. The neck looks a little like Les Claypool's rainbow bass. With the (I think) maple sticking out on each side. Cool. I like the woods a lot.

    I'm pretty sure the neck looks like that because it just has the fretboard glued to it...the neck isn't shaped yet..
    I still can't wait for my first pic...it's been 17 weeks..
  15. Nice. What kind of pickups are you gonna have? I'll assume that it'll be rear routed. What controls to you plan to have?
  16. Come-on, you don't like mine? mine rocks :)

    hey Candiria,
    lookin good! keep us updated!

    i like it, the 12th fret X thing kinda caught me off guard but i like the way the bass looks so far. Thats all
  18. For those of you who already own a DP Custom, how would you compare the sound of yours to high-end basses that you've played? What kind of electronics/pickup configuration did you choose?
  19. Candiria, I think your bass is looking great! When does he expect to have it finished? Oh, and do you have to order a case separately (or does it come with a case or gigbag)?
