    You guys don't want to know how much $$$$ I got soaked into this bad boy. Maple. Neck-through. Tone for days.

    How did you make the nut and bridge?

    Also, I'd turn the pickup so all 4 magnets are under the string...

    I would like to order one. Can I get one w/a quilt maple top?
    I am so sick & tired of moving my anchor point around anyway.

    Actually, there are inlays. At the 5th, 12th and 24th positions. The Luthier used a strange, yet subtle material. I could be wrong, but I believe it's blue ink.

    chordal intonation must be monsterous!

  11. thats hot, if i have any pine left over from the cab im working on, i may just play around with this, ive got some old P bass pups laying around anyway
  12. lol

    you really did go from one extreme to another...

    from 11 strings to 1 ;)

  13. That's pretty cool.

    Reminds me of Claypool on that live dvd.
  14. my only issue would be the weight or lack there of. if i decided to start really getting creative i dont think i could hold that thing still

    Looks like it would double as a fishin' pole with a little extra string and a hook. Very very nice indeed!

    I see you had it pre-wired with upgrades in mind (pickup will take 3 more strings!). Nice! :p

    I'm so confused.

  18. And you could make your own TL cab and it would double as a case :)


    Is this for whamola or the new neo-punk-prog-skiffle scene I've been hearing so much about?

    That is awesome. I have some spare parts laying around. I might just make me something like that.

    uhmm , do you get splinters playing this baby ?

    the action looks a little high for me , and i agree with Trevorus about the pickup ,
    but it's still a cool toy ... :D
