Here it stars the year with two headless guitars!
First of all, I'm sorry about a lot of pics and for not post them at same time that it was taken/build.

Both guitars uses the same brazilian woods species, Marupá (Simarouba amara Aubl) for the body, Pau-Marfim (Balfourodendron riedelianum) for the neck and fretboard.
The hardware is from a braziliand manufactor, bridge is Nova Guitar Parts, an pickups are Malagoli. 

The withe/green have a pushpull to split bridge pickup and a killswitch. The black one have two minitoogles on-on-on. In the middle position is the humbucker, sides could select inner or outer coils to split.

Jescar nickel frets 26~25,5 scales, with luminescent inlay dots. Finish is PU matte. 

Hope you guys enjoy!

So I started two new projects. A 6 string bass and another headless

The bass had Ceddar body, Pau Marfim neck and fingerboard ( 37'' to 32'' fanned), Gotoh tunners, Nova Guitar parts headless bridge (yeah both tuning systems) and custom wound jazz bass pickups by Customy Pickups. Jescar nickel frtes and "square" inlays ( like fenders 70's JB).

The main idea is make a modern 6 string jazz bass, the old concept with a new visual.

The first ideas was red or blue, but the last seven strings that I made was red and blue ones. Two of them was a red variation, solid or dark burst red like you suggest. 

I'm thinking about that modern burst. Instead a contour burst that fades from edges to center, the oposite. Dark part begins on center and fade to edges. In this case red or blue.

Or side to side. Starting from the "butt" darker fading to cutways. In this case almost like a sunburst, balck red and yelow finishing before the end of the body, lefting a part of original maple color.

I don't know too if make bevels like confort lines at superior part of the body, like some models of Skervesen or Kiesel. I'm affraid that looks so close with this brands. 

Let's talking ....

This body shape would lend itself to an angled or diagonal fade, dark starting at the butt end on the treble side and angling across to being light at the treble horn.

That might look very cool.

The bass had the truss rod access was routed and pre-sanded. Fretboard are sloted, inlays applied and glued on the neck. Machine heads holes are open.  Attachment screws holes and bushes open and installed. Custom pickup cover was laser cutted and wait for the pickups to final assembly. It's stagered cut because I don't know the final heigth of bobbin pickup only width and length are know it depend of custom resistence ordered ( 12 and 14k).165447431_2953063328264026_1618715638050073852_n.thumb.jpg.b847f03039b75a8ba86d6cc0486c4f02.jpg165217390_2953063198264039_1960344774598134275_n.thumb.jpg.b36b8c37f407df2a5bf3dd2c31ca3b09.jpg168845841_2958932047677154_355806937503102210_n.thumb.jpg.1849100e3ddc2ace8311b03a2d8e3ff0.jpg168406771_2958932101010482_3489216456993432182_n.thumb.jpg.9b5414f03ac25718c5d50a9ee6471693.jpg168003519_2958931977677161_4893257197281051015_n.thumb.jpg.41372417cc30915f94480e3855f56c91.jpg165846665_2953067641596928_1478504868860515405_n.thumb.jpg.fd57988280602c4a5e49a83a9da2bdf8.jpg165652502_2953067684930257_8807451817571866659_n.thumb.jpg.9f3656a0c40b441a50f30601ec6244a9.jpg165254387_2953067601596932_2168248658015651840_n.thumb.jpg.6c5aa544e9e1971f85678e71e51d8ecc.jpg

Oh, I LOVE that.

The green on the back of the neck kinda reminds me of this one I did in 2018.

Beautiful burst, really dig the transitions and the colors.

Also the color match on the back between the neck and the body are also very attractive.

Thanks!!!! You refering to the finish on headless neck back? There's no green on it. Think that was a ligth effect on trapezoid neck shape.
