    What do you people think of my (possible) new body style the "R-Bass" ?

    Simple and elegant. I especially like the slight points on each horn. What type of pups do you intend to put in it?

    For the first one, I'm planning on going with Aero dual coils.

    The horns look a little Gumby to me, especially the top one.

    Definately.
    I think you're just begging for confusion otherwise.
    The design looks good though.
    Kind of a "Buzz" meets a "4001".

    How about "Buzzenbacher"?:p :p ;)

    You are probably right on that one, I'll have to give the name some more thought.

    OK, here is the MDF template for a five string.
    I adjusted the top horn a little, the first plywood template I made showed that the two previous horns really didn't go together :eyebrow: . I think this looks better, What do you think?

    I'm going to be picking out the body woods later, I'm leaning towards a Spanish Cedar for the core.

    Looks good - Has a nice roundish balanced feeling to it :D
     
  17. R-bass= reasonbass lol....cool body shape, its nice to see someone from florida making basses.
     
  18. Cliff,
    I've been to your website a couple times -- really like what I'm seeing.

    The new body has shades of James Basses and Yancey basses. Take a look at their body styles. It'll be kind of a deja vu thing.

    Keep creating. Your bassplaying public supports you 100%!
     
  19. I reckon you should add just a little tiny cut out somewhere to fit in with all the Biggest names :)
    Thanks
    Troy
