I want do do this design as A bass as well but its been years since I played the bass so thats an idea for the back burner, and I tend to keep or give away most of the guitars I do and Ive been selling some now but not tons NOT YET anyway :D

I'm diggin' it, Matt. You might have to change the name, tho.

Schecter

CRAP!! ok now Im thinking maybe a flame maple top would look good on this design but im not sure

OK SOMEONE TALK ME IN TO IT :D

FLAT BLACK OR FLAME MAPLE TOP DONE IN BLACK OR RED

ya see one really cool thing I could do if i do a maple top on it is I could add a nice strip of flame maple down the center of the alder back since its a bit to small for the design to fit with out adding another strip of alder in and I dont like that idea

!!METAL MATT!! :D

''headless bass,headless bass!''

lol

i just have to say ur skills are immense

and then you go and find a woman who is perfect...and move to a lake?

i'm jelouse lol

imo a red stained top would look nice

or even a burl,have you seen a recent project with a stained,carved top burl,it was stained purple and was really nice

the bevels in your drawing might produce the same grain pattern as the purple guitars carve?

if you understand what i mean :D

Whoa....settle down, big fella. I didn't get your PM until a minute ago.

If you just put the url up, the forum software will automatically turn it into a link for folks to click on.

Do that will all the pics, then after you PREVIEW your post, go back and use the IMG tag for the pic you want to show up in the thread.

If it continues to jack up like this, check your computer settings. You might need a cache or cookie clear, or something to that effect.

Let me know if you still have problems.

And let us all know when that bad boy (literally) is completed! :D
