Everyone else was doin' it!
Another one. Quilted Walnut.
Here are mine. The 5-string is a Carvin B5 and the 6-string is a Dean Edge Q
My Hanewinckel Artist Ceres 6-string ( the one in my Avatar ) by Hanewinckel Guitars ( http://www.hguitars.com/ )
That top has tremendous depth do it.
Man, the top on that Hanie looks as though you could stick your finger through it.
Yeah, it's like a hologram. It has more depth than any top I've ever seen in person.
That instrument used to be Pete Hanewinckel's personal bass. He let me borrow it to record some Bach stuff in 1999. That was about 6 months after I first tried it out at Pete's place. I had found his web site when it first came up at Harmony Central's What's New page. I noticed that he was local so I decided to check one out. That bass just blew me away. The action and playability were incredible and is sounds as good as it looks. ( http://www.jsbach.net/bass/1004-courante-070899.mp3 )
I asked Pete if he would sell it to me but since it was his personal bass, he didn't want to sell it. Eventually, I ordered my first 7-string from him:
About a year ago, I think, he made himself a new personal bass and asked if I wanted to buy his old one. He gave me a good used price on it so I jumped on it. About 6 months ago, he also decided to build himself a new fretless so I bought his old 6-string fretless too.
I've got 4 Hanie's now!
Here's Soybases's Eshenbaugh.
Not quite so red in real life, flash pics...
Flamed Spalted Maple
Jeff, for some reason, I'm finding it VERY hard to like you right now.
That is the most beautiful top I have ever seen on a bass. I am a sucker for spalted maple, and the flame in there just pushes it over the edge.
I feel pretty fortunate to own these basses. They are all keepers.
Roger really came through on that bass. It was the first spalted top he has made. It took me awhile to talk him into it and then he looked for 6 months before he felt he found a top he was happy with. It's more stunning in person and plays like a dream.
Although it may not count yet, I plan on making something with this as well as a lot of other equally beautiful (and hopefully thicker) wood.
Dave, I had a Bossa OB6 that was nice, but that quilt on your Hanie is, hands down the perdiest I've ever seen! This one is of my Fretless Roscoe SKB3006. (I have to put each Jpeg in it's own post as they are too big to be posted together) Thois one is flamed/quilt/burl Redwood;
This is my fretted SKB3006;
Burl myrtle top and back. Spalted purpleheart fretboard;
It's not mine yet, still in the process of being made.
This is mine.
This pic isn't as good as the Roscoe's but shows a little bit of the quilt.
Thanks, glad you liked my Hanie. I have more pics at:
Some are mine, some aren't.
I like your Roscoe pics. I've always admired those instruments although I've never tried one. If I wasn't so attached to Hanewinckels, I'd probably look into Roscoes.
I like it better in its natural state.
