    Ok, I'm starting to build two 5 string basses at once.
    Using Sapele and Walnut for bodies, Maple necks, and Pau Ferro, or Birdseye Maple Fretboards.
    These basses are going to have a small body (very small)
    but thick - about 44 mm, and they will be slab bodies.

    Tell me what you think about my design :)

    Sorry for the bad photos

    44.5mm is actually a standard thickness for a bass.

    I guess you're right, but the slab design makes it feel very thick,
    probably those straight angles..
