    The top and back wood is figured / curly camphor laurel - an Australian "weed" timber.

    A little bit of info can be found here:

    The body core is Tasmanian Blackwood with thin Jarrah accent lines.
     
  4. Hey
    I live in Melbourne Australia, used to live in Tassie, but who made this bass, it looks great? Thats a really nice wood, what type of tone does it give?

  5. Thank you for the reply Mr Latimour..really helpful and I have found somewhere in the UK that has Camphor so0o here we come..!!!>.

    I believe the bass was designed by someone called Kennedy...small luthier in Aussie....if you want one Boofis then I am sure Mark can get u in touch..!!!

    I am guessin with those wood combos its gonna have compressed highs...and a very sweet mid and lows....kinda Roscoe esq in sound..!!!!....

    Very yummie P-Bass'y on Steroids sound.!!!>..not not affraid of a good slap.!!!
