    Not advertising!

    I'm not a professional builder...

    Of course I sell some basses to friends or musicians here in paris but I'm not building basses for a living.

    I'm just posting to get feedback from you.

    Scrolls on electric basses just don't work for me...
  9. Beautiful work. I like it. With that combination of woods, I bet that thing is pretty heavy.

    Very nice looking design, (I like the classic scroll - my custom has slightly scrolled horns).

    One thing I never understood on so many basses - what's with the control cavity cover wood that doesn't match the lower/underside body wood ? :confused: It just interrupts the aesthetics of the body wood completely, IMO. I guess because it always looks like it's a patchtrying to hide something ugly, to me....(and what happen's to the chunk of nice wood that was cut from the original board used for the lower body wood???).

    I had to specially specify a cover that is from the same board and continues the figure of my lower body wood on my custom.

    Anyway, tone is more important than cosmetics when it comes to getting paid....Very nice work!

    No sir, I don't like it. Sorry.
  13. I really like scrolls on bass guitars. They make the instrument look very elegant.

    I really dig it. Very original styling. I think it really works and is very well balanced aestetically.

    with the jack where it is, wouldn't the cord and the plug thing kind aget in the way? i think that would be anoying.
