    Francois(Basman 74) asked me to do a prototype neck and body for him. This is the result.

    Alder body with Walnut top
    34" scale, 3 pc. maple neck
    Pau Ferro Fretboard
    Walnut overlay on Headstock
    standard contours
    6 bolt deep angle neck pocket
    matching walnut coverplate

    This is the first bolt on I have built in 12 years completely from scratch, having to make all new templates for everything except the pick-ups...LOL

    The simplicity of the woods makes it even more desirable....
