    Me first!! My custom Matt Pulcinella Level 5's. I'm hoping to get a 6 string MPG pretty soon. With a spalt top of course!

    Drift wood plus a good deal of metal. But it's the top of a Spalt.
     
  8. Normally, I don't like spalt, but this is super nice! So clean!

    Here's a pic of my spalted Roscoe in progress (partialy carved body with a couple coats of seal applied).

    Thanks! The sealer really brought out the grain. I can't wait to see and play the finished product.

    Yes your right, that chunk of wood will look great when all completed. The wait is killer though :D I've had two Roscoe's, great basses. :)
