Hey all, Yesterday morning I picked up my first ever custom bass, and it is such an amazing experience and just an awesome thing to do. Ok, so my Stambaugh is a fully custom bass, Chris and I designed the body together, and what woods to use for the neck and body. I chose this awesome redwood to for all the awesome figuring in the grain. I went with headless because it seems so much easier and brings the weight down a lot, underneath the ramp are two nordstrand big splits. In total the bass weighs 7 pounds and I enjoy it a lot. If you would like to see all the photos of it here: http://s1325.photobucket.com/user/ricky_stellar/library/Stambaugh custom 5 string?sort=3&page=1 For some reason TB won't let me upload.
