    Thanks guys!

    I'll be getting back to the "wings" later this week.

    In the mean time, I finished two up:

      This is cool ****************, man. Do you do it as a business or just a hobby or what?

        It's a tiny seedling of a small business that may one day actually be a source of beer money.



        Sooooo...it's been a bit of a frustrating few months in the shop.

        It seems like I was taking one step forward and five steps back every time I ventured down there, so I took a little break.

        Getting back to things, here's where I am on the prototype basses.

        I hope to have them finished and ready to ship in the next two weeks or so.

            Shoot me a PM, email through my website, or watch the classifieds here.



            The Oz Dragonfly Whammy bass decided it was ready to quit fighting with me.

            That said, I don't think I'm man enough to wrestle what's left of its guts back in...:P

              OK, back in the saddle again.

              Time to get these two across the finish line...

                        Here's the latest:

                        Slab-front, ready for paint.



                        Forearm contour will have faux-binding finish.



                        Belly-cut and heel access contour.



                        Nice and smooth...ready for paint.



                        Bullet-truss one-piece guitar neck and tilt-back bass neck...just a little bit different.



                        Volute on the bass neck and skunk stripe on the guitar.

                          It looks like I'll be having bridges, rings & control plates fabricated in polished stainless steel by Hipshot.

                          They will be "drop in" replacements for '50s F-style bridges, but with individual saddles:

                            I like that shape as a guitar. I doubt I'd pay what you'd be asking for it, but it's cool nonetheless.

                              Control plate, Thunderbird and Humbucker pickup ring prototypes in stainless steel by Hipshot Products, Inc.

                              Also, four-string bass bridge plate prototype in stainless steel with top-mount and string-through options.

                              Zack at Hipshot is doing a great job on these for me.
