Working on a new bass

  1. Well it's time for a new project. I think this is the direction i'm going. This is actually the back of the wood I'm using the front is killer quilted maple. Its goin to bea 4 string probably Bartolini p/j w 5.2 pre. Thats all I have so far seeing as my creative process meanders until it's too late to change directions. Opinions and critiques welcome .

    Looks quite Ritter so far. ;)
    Not sure how 'creative' I'd call it so far but the wood looks nice in any case and since there is much more than just the body shape to be creative on when building an instrument I'm looking forward to seeing the progress pics :)
