  1. Just getting some general opinions here - Which of these two designs do you like better?:

    The single-cut, I think :)

    But both are nice.
  3. double-cut, both are great, but theres something about single-cuts that look awkward to me
  4. What happened to the hollowbody dealio?
    BTW, #1 is also nice.:)

    I like the single-cut best. But loose the 'knob parade'! :)
  6. I quite like the knob parade, as well as the spectating switches & bystanding input jack.:D
  7. I like the knob parade too - and it's all very usefull stuff ;)

    I could have done most of those switches into push/pull pots instead, but I've never been a big fan of push/pull pots. I'd much rather have an easy switch to flick, and I kind like how nice they look all lined up :smug:
  8. There are 7 knobs on the 7 string, but they're not as tidily arranged as I might have liked. Certainly not a parade. 6 knobs & 3 switches on the 6. Definitely a parade. 3 on the 4: a mere get-together. Perhaps only a chance encounter...

    BTW, I see you like front-mounted output jacks. Do you, like me, sit on the floor & plunk the bass?:eyebrow: Man, that just didn't sound right...
  9. Ah hell yeah. The floor, a couch, a cushy beanbag. Whatever's comfortable :D

    Those side mounted jacks are just asking for trouble anyways :p

    Oh & BTW (for those of you keeping track): I think I've ditched the hollowbody idea for this bass. As nice as it looks, I'm going for a full-on solidbody tone. Maybe I'll get some cool fingerboard inlay instead...
  10. I prefer the double cut.

    Double Cut......looks sharp!

    Those single cut basses just never appealed to me. Also I would think the double cut would be a bit lighter, which would be a factor for me after playing a 16 ton Alembic for 15 years!

    Both designs are nice, but I prefer the SC.

    BTW, why so many knobs? Is this a piezo bridge?

    I would say that if you MUST have this many knobs, it would look nice if they were wood, either matching or complimenting the top.

    Good luck!

    Singlecut FTW!
  18. Yep, piezo bridge. So piezo volume and piezo tone added to your usual 3 band pre controls. The knobs probably will be ebony :)
