Honest, I really was going to make my own EUB... but I met this guy Bill Paulin, a maker of stringed instruments and fine furniture who'd made a sweet electric violin for a friend of mine. I talked to him about my plans to make a compact EUB. Long story short, this is what he delivered this week: http://www.fittell.id.au/eub/ This one is a prototype, more minimalist than his earlier EUB design. Initially he gave me a rough pre-prototype that he knocked up from cheap Bunya pine, which sounded surprisingly good. This one, in quality tone woods, has a more mellow, natural sound with full-bodied lows - it doesn't seem to need any EQ through my Eden rig. Bill said he's happy to take orders for more of the same, priced at $1500 (Australian).
