Interesting! I underestimated his machine... I've been assuming that the scrolls would still have to be hand-carved. If the robot has that capability, then the key will be DH's ability to teach (program) that robot.
Yeah, i just watched a bunch of violin scroll carving on CNC. If they can carve that, the simple scroll on the upper horn should just need sanding or simple finishing.
Oh no. A CNC machine can do violin scrolls, and what Mr. Huff and the other "scroll" bass manufacturers are doing are not anywhere near as complex as a violin scroll. They'll just need a bit of final sanding and then they can go right off to the finish booth.
Speaking of, what's he using for finish anyway? Anyone know?
Time. Loads of it, too.
From what I’ve read, there seems to be no finish to a Huff bass.
"Waitlisters' tears" was my favorite.
Have you been waiting 15 years for a bass from this builder, FuzzBass ?
I placed my DH order with 50% deposit in early April 2003, which makes it 18 years. Others have been waiting longer... a full two decades for at least one TBer (probably more than one).
I'm just before you, at January of 2003, but yeah I'm pretty sure there are at least a few others from before that.
Creeping up on 19 years... insanity.
There's a hacky joke to be made here, along the lines of, "Oh, did he not tell you he had to grow the trees first?". But that literally could have happened in this time span.
Well, I sure hope the best for you, but there's no way on God's Green Earth (or any other planet I could think of) I'd wait for an axe I ordered 18 years ago, if for no other reason than what I thought I wanted 18 years ago would surely be different than what I'm after today.
Best of Luck to both of you.
Well, at least for me, if there's a silver lining to all of this, it's that I still want a 5 string, and I'm okay with the wood choices I made.
Since no routing has been done on the body, I've been able to make changes to preamps and pickups over the years. Hell, I even learned how to make my own pickups, and thankfully I even like how they sound, so I'm able to use those in the bass. Hopefully we'll all get them... eventually.
He want's to know who's excited about him carving out some scroll basses.
Now that I think about it, back in the old days, Yamaha could make you wait almost that long . . . . .
Ah, the joys of engineering for production...
