    This my new bass, completly designed by myself Christophe, my luthier Roberto Finelli, and a friend Alessandro Conti (designer and metal singer).

    The making of it was done by Roberto.

    We needed almost one year to give birth to it, but now it is done !!!

    The name "ARC" is the first letters of our 3 names Alessandro, Roberto and Christophe.

    The main caracteristics are:
    5 strings
    34"
    mapple bolted neck
    mahogany body
    Delano pickups
    Sandberg electronics

    Not bad. The only part I don't like is the lower horn. It's to long for my tastes. I love the headstock, though.

    Edit: The more I look at it, the more I like the shape as a whole; even the lower horn :). The neck looks nice and thick, which is a plus in my book. Very Nice.

    Nice :) For some reason I first thought of a Ritter when I saw the body shape.

    The headstock reminded me of Ritter's.

    Very impressive!
     
  6. ...That looks strangely similar in shape to a bass that I have scratched down on a piece of paper... Hmmm... lol.

    Nice bass, I hope it sounds twice as good as it looks... That should make it untouchable!
