LOL. I know the feeling.
Great job, and a really beautiful and distinctive instrument.
Question: Do those rotating potentiometer frequency resistance modifiers match?
It had to be asked right? Seriously that thing is amazing and incredible quality. I bet if feels good to be done .
Thanks gitlvr - I'm happy as a pig in....as happy as a dirty pig with my bass.
James - Of course they match - they're made out of the same wood Well it feels kind of good to be done, but when is the next challenge? I already have plans for 2 or 3 more!
I had a great time with this one. I learned bunches about building guitars. Added a new one to the stable. I watched about a hundred beautiful instruments being built. Talked back & forth with lots of fine knowledgeable people. Bought a bunch of new tools. What more could you want?
I know what you mean. Since I've started building, my brain is usually two or three builds ahead of where I actually am. I've got two or three ideas spinning around right now, and one build that I put on hold to start this one.
Well, here it is. The video quality is pretty bad. Surpassed only by the crappy sound quality. Which is definitely surpassed by my lousy playing ability.
I just got called to work again, so I had to kind of rush this. I really wanted to get a real musician to play for the video. Maybe I can post another video later if I get back before the challenge ends.
I want to thank everyone that helped me on this build with suggestions & encouragement. Also like to thank all the builders from last year that inspired me to build a guitar in the first place. I would thank individuals, but if I started naming people, I know I would leave a bunch out and that just wouldn't be right.
this turned out great!
Great job, that is a beauty.
Nice...and I love the shirt!
That's my favorite shirt!
That is a great looking bass you've made.
Great work, that is one sweet bass!!!
Well done Nosmo! You have made it over the finish line standing! I can only hope to do so well.
Congrats nosmo , great bass you built there , great thread , had a lot of fun
Thank you all - I had a great time conversing with you.
Great bass! A short-scale bass is definitely on my to-do list!
Outstanding, nosmo! Everything looks fantastic. You should definitely be proud of that baby.
jimdkc - Short scale is a lot easier to play for me. Frets are closer together & there are less strings
Thanks Roger - It may not be a hard rock fiddle like yours, but I'm playing it more than my guitars right now.
Great job! It's a beauty, and finished well ahead of the
Congrats! Feels good to be done, huh?
Wow! Is it really legal for a guitar to be that beautiful?
