Well first off, I hope its cool to post about EUB's even though this is in the BG forums. But anyways..... This is my second electric upright and it is miles ahead of the first one. This is a singlecut, i was planning a bolt on but couldn't pass this piece of wood up. It is made from a piece beautiful piece of curly maple. I found this in my grandpa's attic, I asked him about it and he said i could have it. Apparently he bought it in the mid 80's to make a gun stock, but never got around to it. The neck on this thing is very thick, just like I like em'. The curly maple part is 1" thick the whole way up, with a 5/8" rosewood board from bob gollihur on top of that. I'm pretty sure i won't need an reinforcements here, but i still wish i would have had the foresight to put them in for peace of mind. The scale is 41.5" just like a 3/4 upright. The strings will go all the way around the end of the bass and connect to a tailpiece on the back. The stand is made of standard drum hardware. Theres a tom mount on the back of the bass the connects to a receiver on a straight cymbal stand. Electronics will consist of a K&K big twin (thanks again to bob) running through a fishman powerjack active buffer/pre. All of the "accesories" (bridge, tailpiece, control plate, etc.) will be made of rosewood to match the fingerboard. The tuners are some large open gear BG tuners made by some off brand company. The finish is still a little up in the air. I know that all the rosewood parts will be finished with teak oil. On the body I will probably use tru-oil. Do you guys think i should use any stain on the curly maple? Iwould like to make the grain a little more visible, but i like the lite natural color of the maple too. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear some tone predictions too. Lemme know what you guys think.
