Entry for October 2019's Guitar Of The Month is now open!
Here is my third entry to GOTM. It's hollowbody Les Paul-type of guitar. The body is totally hollow, not semi-hollow with center part. Some info about it: Body: Front and back Finnish birch, sides Finnish pine. F-holes are my own design. Neck: thermo-handled aspen with rosewood fingerboard and block inlays. 25" scale Flax oil finishing with black/blue/red color combination. Pickups de Armond-type of ones designed by Keith Amstrong. Wilkinsson lock-type of tuners. Bibsgy-clone vibra with roll-bridge. You can find some sound samples from this link: http://www.tuulikumpu.fi/?p=p_78&sName...tit:-Hollowbody
Well as a valid instrument, my bass is very playable (and I like its sound very much too), very light and ergomically thinking very easy to play. You can find some sound examples (mp3) from my project-page: http://www.tuulikumpu.fi/?p=p_72&sName...a-ja-työvaiheet
My 2nd entry for GOTM: "Working man"-bassguitar. Fretless bass meets 100 years old woody shovel. Woods: Neck and half of the body: aspen (thermo-version) Fingerboard: beech One jazz-bass-type of pickup + one DIY piezo-pickup. Couple sound samples played by myself in my project page (these mp3-files, sorry page is written in Finnish): My working man bass guitar project page
