    Very nice! A conservative design, without looking old and farty (sorry if that doesn't translate). Looks really nicely finished. I like the headstock! What are the electronics, and those pickups? And is the body core stained or painted black, after the shaping, or is it somehow colored beforehand?

    BTW the first two photos are very dark.

    pics are not that great, they are really dark. the bass is mahogany with flame maple top and it's hand colored. fingerboard is bird'seye maple and neck is maple with 2 purpleheart insert. headstock is covered with flame maple and match the body finish.

    the pickups are the proprietary RASH, single coil at neck and double coil splittable at bridge. pickups are in a wooden shell and they are really hot. they are designed with single pole piece. there 's a bartolini preamp too which is selectable. bass is both traditional and modern and sounds really good. the blue color was a personal choice so i really love it. the bass is really ergonomic and light.

    thanks to you all!

    Your Bass is beautiful. It makes me wish I could grab it and try it out. I hope it comes "alive" for you.
