    Oh and a Tele style. The walnut top is about 140 years old. And I love that ebony grain.

    Just finished this for a customer - pendant in sterling silver. One of my other hobbies that I occasionally make a little money from.

    Finally finished my first bass. I started this puppy in 2013. In true Brainy style I had trouble with the original finish so I took it off. Then I sent it to its room for a year and a half to think about what it had done. Anyway, it feels good to finally be finished.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone. It's fun to show my work to friends and family, but the comments that count the most are from the folks here on TDPRI.

    Thanks RR.

    Neck is 11 piece lam with mahogany, maple, paduak and rosewood. Scale length is 34"-37". The fretboard and pickup covers are tulipwood.

    Body is swamp ash, with a thin layer of paduak and top is maple. Body and neck were filled with Birchwood Casey Sealer/Filler and finished with nitro.

    The pickups are hand wound jazz-style pickups, but since they're positioned at an angle, the pole pieces had to be further apart than normal. The preamp is an Aguilar OBP-3.

    That looks very cool, but what is it? Is it paint or some sort of fabric or ???

    My three year old has become obsessed with guitars and performing. He's always running up on stage with his toy guitar and playing next to me during rehearsal and always wants to use my pedal board. Yesterday I cleaned out my spare parts and grabbed some scrap wood and cooked him up a fake pedal board. He's been performing all morning.

    Hey y'all! I'll have a few builds back up and on my desk because the folks at Bitterroot are awesome. I had my order almost 48 hours later. I ordered Thursday and had truss rods, bridges and jacks cups on my porch late yesterday morning.
