    These are my 2 babbies. Just got the 4 string. Do you like? Where do you think, adjustments can be done.

    I dig the six- definitely AJ inspired. It could use a bit more carving at the top of the headstock so as to not look mostly like a plain rectangle. The four has some interesting elements, although there's not a great use for 26 frets when the lower bout is only cut just deep enough to access the 24th.

    umm tapping maybe? otherwise you'd have to bring your thumb out from behind to get there.

    and oh yeah, both are awesome:bassist:

    I like the one of the left! The one on the right is very Fodera (as mentioned), and I was just never a fan of the Jackson body shape. Cool basses!

    The left one looks like a Schecter Stilleto body with a Ritter upper horn and a Curbow headstock.

    I dig.

    Very true!! The 26th fret is almost impossible.

    Thxs guys for the feedback. I made the 4, with a little help from my friends. I compared it to a Fodera Monarch and it sounds *almost* the same, (im gonna get burned for this). Also, I didn't get to spend $1k for the 4 string, that's the amazing part.

    I'm REALLY loving that body on the 4 string! The dark wood would go really well with some inlay around the outside of the body, IMO. Since the neck is almost the same color (at least in the pics), some subtle stuff may look good. OH! or you could go with pearl(oid) panels on the pickups! The string spacing also looks fairly wide up at the nut on the 4, but that seems more like a playing preference. A wonderful pair!

    I like the 4 stringer. The 6er is not my type, but still looks classy.

    I like 'em both! Very nice. I would agree with Bryan though, that the 6-string could use a little more carving to the headstock. To give it a nicer shape.
