    I seem to remember a thread like this in the distant past, but I couldn't find it, so...

    Post pictures of your zebrawood-topped basses! Unfortunately, I have nothing to show - I just need to satisfy my zebrawood fixation until I get my Nordstrand which is going to have a zebrawood top :hyper: .

    So, let the posting begin! I'm especially interested in seeing singlecuts - I don't recall seeing very many of those with zebrawood tops (although my bass will not be an SC, but an NJ Deluxe).

    It's not a SC but it's Zebrawood.

    I remember that one Nino, it's my favorite one of yours (although I prefer black hardware with zebrawood).

    Keep 'em coming everyone! :)

  11. Signature worthy. That is seriously going to be one of the most far out basses(can you still call it that?) ever. Great idea, hope it turns out well.
     
  12. I think im in love . . .

    This one is not mine. It was made by TB occasional user lonnybass, and has what I think is a very cool use of zebrawood complimenting the body shape.

    JP - That's another one of my favorite zebrawood basses. I love the grain on that one! (and my JP GAS increases... Maybe someday ;) )

    here is a pic of the bass i am building. zebrawood with bolivian rosewood stripe. Ash body. its a small body, but i want to maintain some mass, so its 1.75" thick.

    Thats a Carvin neck that will be going on when i get this nearer completion.
