    This is a 10 string that I was commissioned to make in process with 39 frets.
    Top and back are Rosewood Stumpwood with a Curly Maple core and Walnut accents. The neck is 7 piece neck through with Birdseye Maple and Walnut stringers.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I guess it is a 1.5 cut. I attacked the back of the guitar today.

    This one was actually slated for the Maidau we spoke about. I needed to get it out quickly though, so I went with the Rosewood top and back instead.

    great minds think alike!

    I can`t take the credit for the design. It is the brain child of Eric Lovett (he`s a Mod over on sevenstring.org), who I`m building it for. I just tweaked the design to bring it to life.

    I like it! Make it a 5-string and we'll talk :smug: Actually, I'm too cheap to buy basses nowadays, I just build'em.

    But I digress: Nice bass! Those last few frets are tight!
