What do you guys think- match the woods or go contrasting?
Here's a pic:
All ideas are welcome.
i would go with fretboard wood...
And top wood as the top part of the knobs with the bottom as the FB wood.
a nice stripey macc ebony.
on both, it will be be very hard to match up the monkey pod with that sap seam in the middle
match the fboard.
Got anything in stock? I'd of course use Chris to build them.
The fret board is ebony bound in wenge
tribal beat me to it.
yep thats what i was thinking....just wasnt sure how to say it...lol
I'd go ebony. Plain, simple, elegant.
Would anyone be able to photoshop this pic for me?
Ill give it a shot...Im not really that good at it, but well see.
What do you want?
edit: well, I wasnt sure exactly what you wanted, so Im working on one with ebony covers on the pu's. The knobs have the top wood as a cap, and then ebony as the bottom of it. Keep in mind this will be my first shot at anything like this.
Aight, here we go, my first attempt at any photoshopping of this kind.
I like it!
Yeah I like it a LOT- just for the sake of trying...how about contrasting a light colored wood-like a flame maple?
For which parts? IMO, it might would look cool as the bottom of the knobs and possibly the PU covers. I can try both if you like.
Great job DMB!!!
I went with some tappered knobs. You can see a pic here...
Thanks Joe, glad you approve.
Kephah, I tried using ash and flame maple for PU covers, and I dont know if its just because Im still very new at this or what, but I could not get it to look good at all. You may want to search up the photoshopping thread in the basses section and see if one of those guys can do it better. IMO, the best look on your bass is going to be with the PU covers and and tops of the knobs matching the topwood, and then have the bottom of the knobs either be the FB wood or ash.
