    TB and TDPRI.

    I have only made one bass body, but have assembled and finished two basses.

    There is a project in the planning. I know how to build it. it's just a matter of design and money at this point. The latter is the biggest obstacle. :(

    I'm highly opinionated and extremely self-assured
    In my backyard, with massive help from this forum. I'm a "learn by doing" kind of guy.
