I started a thread on this before I realized it wouldn't update, so here I am again with the 'one and done' version! Once again, this is my entry to the Talkbass.com winter build off 2019. The theme of this year's builds is 'mash up', so various styles can be squished together. I decided to go with the Rickenbacker shape, as I love it, and also grabbed used RIC pickups, the bridge pickup is a 1974 4001. I had a giant piece of poplar here as well as the flamed top that I was going to put on the jet project a little while ago, so all I needed was a neck and fingerboard, so I ordered a maple blank and an ebony board. The 'pile' (which also serves as the official 'start' pic with the saying of their choice): The bottom and top here are almost three inches thick together lol. Used the old router sled to shave the body down.
