    Thanks!
    It's going to be upgraded soon with an adjustable brass nut.

    That's very attractive. I've never seen a recessed jack like that.

    Ps: it's called Loopo because it has more or less the same colors of my cat, called Loopino.
    Loopo in italian sounds like Lupo which means Wolf and Loopino was intended to mean little loop but sounds like little wolf.

    Yes, I know no one cares about it. :smug::smug::smug:

    Nice. I see by the bridge that your a firm believer in intonation. I love (maybe) seeing basses and guitars with the bridge setup in a strait line or even a smile shape. Seeing them, not using them.

    Too nice to be called a Franken-bass. Especially the body. That's just a nice custom build.

    Very nice!
    For some reason I really like that method of recessing the jack. Really cool and I love the grey stain.
