    Not my bag, but...it looks like nice work.
    The one thing I'd change is get rid of the white top knobs for more traditional Jazz knobs.
    After that, if that's a color that floats your boat, kewl!

    Looked for other examples of your work on your website, but found no other pics...

    Looks nice. Unusual choice in pairing a flamed ?koa? headstock with a painted body, though.

    I like it, especially the Basslines soaps. I like the color, but I also would've gone with a matching stock with a 4 + 1 tunehead layout, and I agree with the knobs comment. Overall, I like it.

    The action is really too low. The picture makes the action look a lot higher than it is. The body is completely handmade, the neck is a deluxe five from warmoth. The fret work is done by me. I never get a warmoth neck that has good enough fret work..

    I've got some clips of a few songs done with the previous(blue) five that I will be posting soon.

    I will be posting more pics of my other work. Just waiting for a new camera that hopefully will give a more detailed picture. The orange is much better looking in person. The pic does not show the sparkle in the finish.
  12. Wow! That's one substantial looking 5. Knobs & color aside, that body is killer. What's the string spacing and scale length?

    it looks nice. I personally think you could've had a gradient like Pearl WHite or Midnight purple or Dead Black. But hey if you want it straight Tangerine sparkle that's you. I really like the headstock and it looks like a bass that sounds great! Good Luck with it man!

    It's kinda groovy, though the notch in the head stock doesn't really float my boat.

    Tasteful but beautifull. FUNKY!
  20. Looks well built, congrats. Just one question, why wouldn't you put knobs that all matched on such a quality bass? The white topped ones look like they were stolen off an 80's Peavy amp. :eek:
