  1. This is my very first attempt at luthiery, and even woodworking in general. So, I suppose I may as well enter. (Clickable thumbnails) Strings: 4 Fretted/Fretless: Lined Fretless Body: Maple/Walnut/Maple Neck: Wenge with Purpleheart and Poplar at Body and Padauk at headstock Neck Construction: Through-neck Fingerboard: Acrylicized Andiroba (thanks to Larry at Gallery Hardwoods) Electronics: Active with Passive Push/Pull Pickups: Bartolini Classic Bass Jazz Preamp: Bartolini 3-Band with Volume/Blend Hardware: Satin Chrome, Inlayed Straplocks, Wooden knobs Bridge: ETS Tuning Fork Tuners: Hipshot Ultralites Finish: Boiled Lindseed Oil with Wax Soundclip: Here
  2. Being a bassist, and loving CT basses, I voted for the bass. My vote was going to go to that or the hollowbody, but I just couldn't get over the fact that the soundhole looked like a sperm :-\.
  3. The problem with that is that I'm having it done by guitarbuildingtemplates.com. I have contemplated sending him a piece of acrylic to do it on, though.
  4. I'm needing it so that I can have a guy cut it out on MDF with a laser cutter. I don't have the resources to make the nice straight lines that I could get with a CNC. All 18" of the extension will not be used. That was just a rough measurement with a few inches to spare. The neck will be used for a bass (standard scale of 34"). Oh, and you have a PM.
  5. Here is what I need: Basically it is just a jazz bass neck with a paddle headstock and 18" extension that is tapered with the rest of the neck.
