Still needs wiring, and some setup, but I'm done pretty much done with this wretch!

Love the bass. How do you set that thing up? Truss rod?
Did you make the fretboard? Finger board? Whatever you call it?

Hey, is that Barney Fife??

Wow, that's a nice looking bass! Like that artwork, too... :thumbs up:
Thanks! Most of it is my girls.

Beeze you are a sick twisted bastard. That's pretty cool. So how does it sound?
Thanx Gerg. I guess it sounds OK, acoustically, though it doesn't seem much louder than the solid body upright I made.I know very little about acoustic construction, and I'm sure i did most everything wrong. :D The pickup friggin' growls.

No truss rod. I don't know how to do that yet.I just bought a cello fingerboard on ebay and stuck it on a piece of mahogany, then shaped it.Worked like a charm.

Yup. We have a whole bunch of portraits of our television friends. We're not normal! :D
