This is a build for the same guy that wanted the gold-clad Tele with the Gretschbuckers, so.... So basically a through neck version of the F hole Jazz Bass that was around a while ago. I have this cool leopardwood top... With some Naphtha: Paper cutout for reference: So I tried to sell the client on this but he opted for maple instead, so.. Playing with F hole position. Inlays in the fretboard. Abalone in rosewood. Through neck bass... well, almost. I thought I'd try doing the glue up on the old Craftsman jointer since it has a substantial 90º fence. One of the problems with these multi laminate necks is that it's easy to glue them up at a slight angle and you end up taking more off to get it all square again. More soon!
