    Too much time on my hands and way cold in the garage, here's some of the basses I've built.

    Awesome! Loving that J- style on the bottom row with the f- hole and multi- species headstock. Walnut and maple?

    Wow....you made those all from scratch? Necks too? Those look nice.....I have a buddy who builds guitars as a hobby and made one for me, several years ago....it's nice...but...those look to be on a different (higher) level than his.

    Fantastic - wish you lived in my part of the world.

    That Jazz is spectacular. I like the PJ to the left of it.
