  1. Please click on link to view the album (quite a few pictures). A year of waiting for this custom built Ryder bass guitar has been totally worth it!!!

    For those of you who don't know, I originally made a review of my old 5 string Ryder bass guitar (found in the Review Section), but this is the latest one, received December 2001.

    No wonder quilted maple is so expensive. Ryder used almost all of the world's supply in that bass! Congratulations, man! That is one beautiful bass - looks good enough to eat.

    That's a beautiful bass.
    I think the quilted neck/fingerboard looks REALLY good.

    I've never heard of Ryder before, but that looks incredible.

    I bet it's really articulate.

    Tres chic. Congrats.

    One question, though: don't you think it's a shame to have a quilted maple back when it's not going to be seen anyway? Surely there are no sonic advantages...

    To clarify: It's a flamed board, not quilted. Quilted isn't suitable for fretboard or neck use. It's just a wider flame.

    Flamed or quilted I don't think it matters. That is an awesome bass. I like how the body has the ebony lines that seperate the wood. And the neck:eek: ,beautiful! How much agian?

    My Gawd. that bass is extremely beautiful... Surely one of the prettier basses I've seen to date :).. I bet it sounds smooth too.. congrats :).. you lucky S.O.B;)
     
  16. Truly Spectacular!

    I've been thinking of a Franken-Warmoth very similar.

    Imagine it fretless with a lefty headstock and a MM pickup in the bridge position and a P-bass pickup in the neck position. Which is not to say yours isn't already perfect for you.

    Congrats.
