    Hello, I'm new here. I have frequented other instrument building forums, usually with the same user name, so some may have seen me before. Someone in another forum mentions the TalkBass forums, so I thought this would be a good place to display some of my work.

    Here is the first bass I made. I eventually sold this one.

    This is the second one I built, which the owner of the first one ordered. She wanted a few modifications to the original design, like a narrower body (which I think looks much nicer), thinner neck and bolt-on. She kinda gave me freedom of design with the neck construction and control layout and finish.

    Your stuff has been interesting me for a while, actually.
    I really like the looks of them, and more importantly I like that you use some creativity in your work, such as not gluing your set necks.

    I think you make very nice work. I'd love to get to try one sometime.

    Welcome aboard :) Very nice work; I find the body shape quite attractive.

    Cool stuff. That neck joint would have to be very tight to not require glue. I would think that if it wasn't, you'd get buzzing, and it'd work loose with vibration. Cool stuff. Gotta be skilled for that!

    Those strings come off of the tuning keys really straight! That looks great! PM me what you ask for these cost wise.
