I always wanted one and never had $3000-$6000 laying around or 2+ years of patience to order a carl thompson. So i decided to make My own 6 string fretless with a 37 inch scale. I have most of the neck done and the body cut out and started shaping it. here are some pics. The woods I used are bocote, curly maple (neck), maple, padauk, cardnal wood, walnut, ebony, bloodwood, and rosewood.
