Final quick sanding session, then a moderate intensity treatment of the northern ash part with a wire brush. Applied the ebony filler initially with a little dilution to give it a chance to get into the grain, then added a second more paste-like layer, pushing down hard. http://i1330.photobucket.com...
Next one (#09): Kermit-type 5 string with a difference. Walnut body, maple contrast layer and indian rosewood top. Maple neck and board, and Seymour Duncan MM pickup and pre (just purchased from Chris - thank you). Should be an interesting and relaxed build after all this spalt, ash and wenge. http:...
Wow, able to check it out in person today, and it's a stunner. Works beautifully with the maple neck and board (and it's not quite as curvy in real life - somewhat curvy, I admit - it's a perspective thing: http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_3615_zpsug5g1zpx.jpg http://i1330.photobu...

Thank you for organising this, Nick, looking forward to this.
Time for an update. David just sent through some teaser pix and I thought I'd pass them on. http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_0075_zpsqq4ysw36.jpg http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_0077_zpsrp0xdq72.jpg http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_0080_zpso2...

I just made a 3 mm thick electronics cover from a left-over piece of my spalted maple top at the MSOGM using the thickness sander. Not sure if that helps but maybe contact David Searle directly and ask if that's something that could be done there. I mean, a pick guard is part of some guitars and bas...
Put in some elbow grease and things are getting there. Neck is almost done - the profile is close, and it's still a little "uneven". Fingerboard needs a little more attention at the body end, it's a little too high (probably 0.5 - 1 mm) so sanding sanding sanding. Here's the neck-body tran...

Looking good, Ivan. Like the veneer layer but personally prefer fries with mayo .
All looking great, Pete. Almost came in today but decided to "suffer" at home with rasping, filing, sanding. Neck's almost done now, and body shaping is about half way. I kmow, still need to do a couple of routing sessions ... . The spalted timber is crazy to work with, some sections crumb...
Those side markers are really excellent. A standard for your future builds? I love them but they only make sense for an unlined fretless. Maple necks would work with a dark veneer.

Starting to look like a bass: http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_3600_zpsqc57ocqy.jpg Perfect fit, bolts connecting nicely and straight, very happy. And the Luminlay looks pretty nice: http://i1330.photobucket.com/albums/w567/drbass/IMG_3599_zpsvpmxbpnq.jpg Tomorrow a bit of band-sa...
