I just unclamped the body halves. They seem to stick togeather, so I got started. I traced on the body shape. It's been adjusted, as expected. It lost a little width, and I changed the upper horn a little, but I like it better now. I was thinking about doing a totally different design, something more J-like, but I stuck to this. So I used a saw to start cutting to the contour. I also tried to use a hack-saw-like thing kinda like a jigsaw, but that didn't really work. I guess I'll use a drill to do the concave curves. As it stands now: 4 string 35 scale basswood body Hopefully some amber-ish stain and epoxy/ some sort of hard finish, but we'll see how it looks all sanded down. 1 piece quartersawn maple neck... also stained? ebony lined fretless fingerboard 2 pickup configuration. Passive. I'd prefer soapbars, or at least something humbucking, but I'd like to keep it around $100.
