    I really like Keith's interpretation of the classic bass. However, I love his original designs. Just need the LG in the house to complete the family portrait. Calling Dr. Nightman. .

    What blue Roscoe? I don’t see it. That bass is in Dennis’s possession, right? ;)

    Yeah!
    Maybe Ray can drop by with one of his LG’s and leave with an empty case too!:hyper:

    Ditto. I have a lovely SKB 6 I’d love to turn into an LG then I’d be set.

    I think Joe has a router pin that can change just about any bass body into an LG. :D

    The last I saw it was when you stopped by to show it to me this afternoon. Of course I watched you put it in your gig bag and take it home.
    I will say though that I just bought one very similar to yours but it’s certainly not yours.
    I do hope that you find it!;)

    I have been considering converting my Century Custom PJ to an LG. It shouldn’t be too hard.:D

    I’m sure Keith could make you a new body ;)

    I'm still fairly young but wouldn't mind having a new body myself. I'll have to check and see what Keith would charge lol.

    That would be a long thin neck, a flat 15 degree angled head, 5 ball ends with thin string like things hanging from them, two functional rear cavities and buckeyes all over you! :laugh:

    Updated pics from Keith. This will look good with a Ebony Fretboard.

    Ebony?
    I’m thinking BEM. It’ll look like an extension of the light grain in your bubinga top and it’ll sound a bit different than your buckeye bass. Plus, Keith uses more strips of graphite in necks with maple boards.

    Another vote for BEM, especially his stock of highly figured BEM.

    Neck is almost finished anyways. I actually prefer Ebony for tone and looks.
