While they were working on my bass, I went in the back to see the progress on my 8 string fretless. After the neck is finished, he'll be having both the body and the headstock finished in ice blue metallic . The body is an alder body from my old Peavey Palaedium Jeff berlin bass. The neck will be quartersawn Rockwood lite (The same as rockwood, but it isn't pressure treated, so it isn't as dense, or as heavy). The fingerboard will still be regular ol' rockwood. The best thing I've heard for fretless. All of the hardware will be black, and I was lucky enough to score the last Schaller 8 string bridge from Warmoth. It looks like Schaller is no longer offering the 8 string bridge in black, and this was the last known piece of stock available anywhere! Hopefully, the bass will be done some time in April. If all goes well, I will be bring 4 custom Curbows to the next Atlanta Bass get together. Awwwww,,,,yeah.... Here are a couple of shots of the first step of the neck. The first one is the neck template on my neck blank.
