    Looks beautimous, Sal. Soon as my camera stops being a piece of junk, I'll take some pics of my project.

    What kind of woods are you using, other than the obvious maple bits?

    cool looking bass, Sal. Do i detect a Carl Thompson influence in your design?
  5. Thanks, guys!

    It's all just maple and walnut. The flame bit down the center I actually picked up at Home Depot :confused: It's not a great flame, but it was worth the $5.

    Oh, Carl's definitely in there. Carl, Marchlewski and Ritter.

    The Marchlewski bit will be a smidgen more obvious if I decide to go with the wood pickguard.

  6. You'll never go wrong with the classics! Great job! Build more! :bassist:

    And curses on your shop for being in a region where you can buy maple at Home Depot. I say maple to the aisle ornaments in my local Depot's and they say "When's breakfast?" :rollno:
  7. Build more?! It's a promise, Hambone!

    What region is that?

    Aisle ornaments :D Golden...

    Hey, Hambone... Walnut fretboard is a bad idea, right?
  8. Play by play, baby...

    cant go wrong with the wooden PG!
  10. I don't really know why. If you've got frets in it, there's not much string ever going to touch the neck and what does isn't going to do any damage. However, you should definitely seal it with a good hard poly, epoxy, CA, or something because it'll soak up the greasy dirt if you don't. I think it would be pretty cool actually.
