    Cool Barnwood Telecaster/51 P Bass style body that I finished. The goal was to make it look like it was made from an old burned out barn. While I'm sure it's not to everyones taste, I really dig how it came out ....

    I think it looked great until I saw the back. It got too burned if you ask me. Also, ebony neck for sure.

    The back isn't any more burned than the front ...it has remains of paint.

    I'm sure it's an acquired taste though :)

    It looks cool. I'd love a bass that had that body and a nicely aged Fender neck to go with it.
