newest bass in progress

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by skguitarsbasses, Oct 27, 2003.

  1. here is the progress of my current 4 string lefty project. one of the newer designs i am going with (the other designs are sketched at the bottom). this is before the truss rod channel has been routed and without the ebony fretboard.
    here are the specs:
    body: bocote top, mahog mid, pau ferro back
    neck: wenge/mahog/wenge layers
    bridge: ebony/bocote layers, not made yet
    pickups: bartolini wired passive

    the other body cut out is going to be the mid body (spanish cedar) for a right handed project that i am going to sell when completed, if anyone is interested let me know!

    great job so far. I dont think you will have much trouble selling the righty if it turns out as well as this one has so far.
