    Semi-hollow ASAT, maybe? Seems like someone here had one up for sale a few weeks ago.

  6. I'm slowly building a pair of semi-hollow EUB's. One will have an ash center block, mahogany wings, mahogany neck & ash headstock. The other one will be the exact opposite. Picture 2 basses- one mahog, one ash. Now cut them into several pieces & mix them up. Next year or so, I'll tell you how they sound.
    Oh, yeah- spalted purpleheart fingerboards (NOTAFINGAH) on both.
