I hope it is alright to post this here, and if not, feel free to delete it. I'm very new to this forum and didn't know about this particular section of it until now. I suppose I'm a bit of an amatuer Luthier then? Anyway, I created my first custom made [mostly] recently. A 5 string fretless using a neck from Warmoth [because I didn't have the expertise in neck building]. The hardware was pruchased from them too. The pickup and preamp is Bartolini. Link to the page that talks about it: David Creations Custom Bass Page The wood [Birdeye Maple with a Bolivian Rosewood inlay] was purchased at OP Hardwoods, a place that Mr. Conklin knows well. I'm currently working on a "makeover" of my old Peavey, changing it from a more traditional 'rock-n-roll' guitar to a natural wood finish. That page is on the site above, off of the main page. I hope to make good use of the expertise on this forum. The names under the title, Luthier's Corner, are the best of the best in guitar creations, and I'm humbled to be coming before such an exemplary panel!
