    Well, my 1st custom bass is finished. I'm actually having 2 built, Mark Eshenbaugh of Greer, SC is building the other one, which will be a 5 string. Mark used to study under Carl Thompson. Here's the finished Aries 6. He's going to install yellow LED's and ship her to me. :cool:

    Interesting upper horn - looks like a "hook". What wood did you use for the body and neck? What electronics? How does it sound?

    It looks great.

    Me too! :D
    Thanks for the compliments. It has an 18 volt 3 band system, piezos, wenge fingerboard, with wenge, mahogany, & ebony strips in the neck, and a mono bridge.
    Wait until you see the Eshenbaugh! I've played the model that he's building for me. WHOOO! If you live in Atlanta, there's one @ GC. Go check it out.

    That means that you'd have an 8 year old that knows EVERYTHING, and has no problem reminding you of it!:)
     
  14. dude, i know that everyone liked it but... damn that thing is toooooo ugly for me (no offence) :rolleyes:

    but i hope it sound good!! :D
     
  15. Why do you need the upper strap button? I'd just loop it on that crazy crook you got going.
     
  16. Wow, man, that looks really nice. Wasn't there a little blurb about it in Bass Player a few months ago?

    Carl Thompson meets the Wilfers!!! Beautiful work!

    I'd keep a sweat cloth in that upper horn ;)

    How did you and these luthiers get together???
