I love that shape.
Looks pretty cool, Taustin! Any pics of the back? The last three frets are pretty far down on the body-are they easily accessible?
Pic of the back:
Couldn't tell you about the accessibility of the frets - I don't have it yet. But it does look like it might be challenging...
It looks like Jack did good for ya. I got a chance to play a bunch of his basses and they were all very good. The cool thing was that they were all different necks, weight, electronics, styles, but they were all very well done. He reminds me more of builders like Rob Allen and Rick Turner than someone like Benevente or Hanewinkle.
Looks like a pretty killer bass, TP! Congrats!!! I really like the cleanliness of the design and LOVE the top.
Although I don't own any of Jack's basses, I have always been a fan of his work. You've got a beautiful instrument there. I hope it brings you a great deal of enjoyment.
Very, very nice !!!!
Very nice looking.
Not a big fan of the small headstock though
I second that!
That came out to be a very beautiful bass! Tell us more. I know that you've played out with it!!! I just talked to Jack....
That's one of my favorite maple tops yet. You should be thrilled.
Damn man!! That looks so awsome man... I don't like the small headstock either, but that is one badass bass.
Jumpin' jahosifat yeeha!
