    Not exactly a natural walnut, but here's my Walnut Carvin B4 with sunsetburst edges and a mahogany neck.

    '94 4004Ci and '03 4004LK Rickenbackers. Tung oil finish on both.

    walnuts.

    Here are a few pics that show the detail and depth of the carving on the LK a little better.....

    Nice . . .

    Are those wood overlays on the Ric on the right hand side?

    I added the other pics while you were posting........but as you can see it is hand carved into the body wings.

    Before anyone mentions it......I know that plenty of people find it hideous but I love it and it is Lemmy's signature model so therefore it must be cool. :bassist:

    I thought that might have been a Lemmy when I saw the first pic. I bet that thing kicks butt!

    Here's one of my Skjold Custom (more in the thread linked in my sig if you want)...

    I've never seen highly and consistently flamed (and really almost spalted) walnut like this before... ever...

    Gonna be a walnut bodied bass if I ever stop changing the design! The shape drawn on was just freehanded and doesn't really look much like the actual design, which I plan on changing anyway ;)
    Been so long since I looked at it, I forgot how nice that piece of Redwood was. I gotta get back to work on that thing!
