Musician's Expo Bass Progress


I have decided to attend my first show, the Musician's Expo in Louisville in March. I will be taking my best and newest work, and have grand plans. This bass is the start of those plans. She is a flamed redwood on white walnut (butternut), weighing essentially nothing as far as a bass is concerned (only a couple of punds without hardware). Mad rose FB, with honduran rosewood binding, rock maple neck with wamara rosewood striping...well it is going to be beautiful.

This will also be the first guitar that I will be sending out for a pro finish job - which I believe will push my guitars up several notches.

Back to Work

Well, I have definately made an atempt to get back in the shop. I am finishing up to singlecut electrics, and will have pictures to show hopefully sometime in the next day or so... Additionally, I will be attending the Musician' Expo in Louisville, KY in March, and started on two basses for that show. These are some the progress shots...Maple, Amazon Rosewood (Macacauba), and walnut are the dominant woods you are seeing. One neck is reinforced with steel, the other with carbon fiber (to maintain a strength to weight ratio).

I will be posting a lot in the days to come, so check back often!
