    Yeah, so my next bass is gonna be a whale back.
    Neck through
    4 string
    Purple heart/wenge/maple neck
    wenge fretboard
    emg pickups
    string through as well.

    But the only trouble is, i cant seem to figure out how the top horn (the whale back) should meet the neck
    any suggestions
    thanks a million

    When I do mine, I just glue the neck to the body all the way...

    Thanks... it's taken a few prototypes to refine it, but I really like it too. Which is odd, because I was never a big fan of singlecut basses. But they're sort-of growing on me. Kinda like a fungus. ;)
