    Thank you gentlemen!

    The body is a light one piece mahogany with a Chechen over maple neck.

    This will have active EMG's.

    That's a pretty looking fingerboard! Almost a shame to hide it behind strings!

    Re: Something is coming,

    I could get into something like that. I think I would like the control cavity to be on the back, seems like it would be easier than trying to stuff the pots and output jack on a pickguard on the traditional front mount body.

    where did you get that body?

    Love the matching mahogany cavity cover! The beauty is in the details! Bet it sounds sweet! Always liked the sound of a mahogany bass.

    Re: Something is coming,

    I am curious… How did the pick up placement affect the tone? Is it tighter bottom in the spirit of a stingray is it more mid and low town like a P bass or does it have a really unique characteristic all of it soon?

    Re: Something is coming,

    It's definitely tighter and less middy than my p bass with the same pickups.

    I'm going to pull the flats off tonight and try some rounds.
