    Does anyone have pictures of a bass with a solid wenge body (or at least a wenge top)? I know I've seen them posted here before, but I can't find any. I think Le Fay made a few, but I don't see any on the site.

    Thanks!

    Here is one I am finishing up for NAMM with a full wenge top and back. It will darken up and look great once the finish is applied. It is a 32" 6 string fretless.....

    I'm sorry -- I totally neglected this thread after I posted! I must've accidentally unsubscribed to the updates.

    Beautiful basses guys!! Does anyone else have any pics they'd like to display. I'm trying to get some ideas.

    Here's a pic of an older Le Fay Pangton 4

    Le Fay usually bleach and dye their wenge bodies.

    XO-Bionic has a Sei with wenge wings-here's a pic of it while it was in progress (couldn't find a finished pic of the back).
