Padouk bodied double cut Tele-Rick Bass

Let's be honest, being unemployed sucks. It does give me the opportunity to do some project work of my own.

Working on the guitar for my stepodaughter gave me an idea to use the basic design yet again, with some modifications. The standard double cut horns, a Rickenbacker style neck pocket and a Tele bottom for the guitar.

Since a couple of weeks i've been following bass lessons, so.... It will be a bass guitar. I have a nice piece of Padouk which i've only used for a heart shaped small box so far. It felt good to use this for my project. Until this moment i just used a scroll saw, a handheld belt sander and sanding paper.

For the finish i´m planning to use a UV resistant clear lacquer. Sadly this project is now on hold due to a lack of parts.

Slowly, but surely i'm picking up where i left off. The padouk bass idea is still there, just not with this piece of wood. This seems better suited to be a regular guitar. (I listened to some sage advice). Tele parts, brass pickguard, 4 switches (on/off, phase)..... I'll post some pictures soon.
