    Gorgeous,and neck pocket tight as a Georgia fiddle player lol. See what I mean by optical illusion?You know it's a bass,I know it's a bass,but with that 10% bigger body it LOOKS like guitar.And it still doesn't have the roundovers and armrest :D.Kinda proud of the old girl :)

    A simple tasteful roundover, about to start on the armrest.No big production will be much more subtle than a normal strat

    In my ongoing effort to get bodies ready to shoot I feather the armrest into the roundovers and them into the body.Also a bit of finish sanding :D

    My current scale isn't closely accurate but looks to be 6 1/4 lbs. Of the 3 basses in my current rotation this is the middle weight. The Russian the light weight. The big heavy is a full scale Tele bass of cedar. I haven't posted much of it because it's a customer build so I really can't here
