    Beautify and unusual looking bass. I like the tele-style headstock with the five strings. You don't see that every day. Reminds me of a zebra! Looks like you have a really unique and interesting instrument there. Enjoy!

    I love an inline 5 headstock. I guarantee that bass sounds terrific, with thick enough mids to choke a moose. Great job!!

    I respected your desire to do a pickguard, but I'm so damn glad you chose not to. That wenge is mesmerizing. Wonderful job.

    And I'm still jealous of two giant hunks of wenge. :spit:

    Thanks Dean,
    Once I got it all together, it just wasn't working for me. So glad I didn't drill holes
    And guess where I got the FB from?

    Thanks Sid
    I'm used to playing Fender J's or Pj's, so this is a whole new world. And yeah, the mids are awsome

    Somehow I missed that. I'm loving my ABW fingerboard. I sanded mine with a 6" Stewmac block... I sure hope you had better tools than me because that stuff is gnarly. I have massive respect for this build. Two profoundly difficult woods to work, and you executed masterfully.
