    I bought wall hangers earlier this year and never got around to putting them up until today.

    I left room for the next guitar on the right side.

    Great collection there, the bass came out really well. Looking forward to the guitar...

    Not really. That wall is only like 8' wide and there's only one more stud that's not in a corner.

    SO - you're a wood turner too? NICE. Great looking guitars, there.

    I'm just starting turning. I liked it when I took woods class in high school, so I decided to get a mini lathe for my birthday. :) The idea was to give me something to do during the winter that's not a big project that I'm going to be constantly out in the cold garage working on, but... I have all the wood and most of the design done for my next guitar, so we'll see how that goes. For right now though, I've promised bowls to people in my family (and myself), so those are the next projects for me aside from a floating shelf for my room.

    I finally got around to making a video of me playing the bass. I definitely did not play the best ever, but I like how the bass sounds.

    I’m really liking playing fretless too. Yesterday I played my other bass for a minute and it felt really weird playing with jumbo frets after playing with this one for a couple weeks.

    I was curious what kind of strings you used there. I heard no squeak and wondered if they were flatwounds or chromes? :)

    Really punchy. Sounds fantastic! I'm wondering the same thing as Dave. It's so clean that if I was only hearing it, I'd swear it was fretted with mutes.

    Sounds as good as it looks. Hard to imagine a better-looking guitar.
