    I've been working on this thing forever so I was pretty excited to finally finish it. I bought the wood for this 3 years ago, did a little bit of work, then I realized I was in way over my head. I took 2.5yrs off, and picked it up about 6 months ago. Finally I am don and very happy with how it turned out. Haven't had a lot of time to try it out (just finished late last night), but I did assemble it before I put the finish on it, and it sounded awesome. I can't wait til Monday's band practice. The pic is pretty bad but all I have is my phone.

    Beautiful! So give us the details....
     
  16. No sound clips yet, but as requested here are some more pics.

    I kinda screwed up in the location of the logo, I should have moved it down so the string doesn't cover part of it.

    I still need to finish the cavity cover.

    The specs for this bass are nothing special.

    It's 34" scale
    Bridge and Tuners are generic from Stew Mac I think.
    Pickups are Fender N3 Noiseless Jazz from bestbassgear.com
    The body is made up of Curly Maple, and Purple heart that I bought from James at the wood shed www.woodshedlumber.com (James was a huge help in this project as well, he let me use his planer and jointer, and also helped me inlay the piece of purple heart in the top)

    how would you describe the sound?

    is it all passive?
