  1. HI Guys, I would present my 1st build (after my 2nd which was a Thunderbird bass from January). Guitar name is: LP-1. This is my single cut, Les Paul, whatever you want to call it. I didn't spend significant time on the design, the goal was apply a standard sunburst technic. I really wanted to make a vintage look with brown and amber colors and definitely not a relic design. It was much more done by my instincts than done by experience but frankly I could really surprise myself with the finish. I used Crimson stains and closed it with high build guitar oils which applied only one time for matte finish. The body is simple basswood, the neck is maple and the fretboard is rosewood. The hardware is pretty standard chrome stuffs, the plastics are cream and gold. Because I like trash metal so much I chose EMG 81/85 active humbuckers for heavy sounds - and it sounds like a HELL! I hope you like it because I LOVE to play on it. Regards, Ratesz
  2. Hello! Some guys from guitar builder groups motivated me to nominate my 2nd build to this competition. The build is done some days ago, some stickers are still missing but I hope good enough for premiere. Because of my 2nd build only, I just used relatively cheap hardware and wood + I never played on bass guitar, so it is enough for a beginner. Guitar name: feel free to name it • Thunderbird design • Basswood body • Maple neck • Rosewood fingerboard • Black hardware • Paint: Crimson Guitar stains • Oil finish: Crimson Guitar High Build Guitar Oil I hope you like it. Regards, Ratesz Whatever reason I could upload only 3 files (I know about size limitation), but I hope rest of the 4 will be here too soon.
