This is gonna be killer!
If I save up the dosh I may need you to make me a bass that matches. 4 string, 30" scale. I've always wanted a short-scale Alembic Exploiter :-)

That's going to be another very nice instrument. Remind me to talk to you about a fretless 4 string when we meet in Sydney Phil
... dial in some "J" to angry it up!

Got gear but little talent!

:lol: That remains to be seen, its 27" scale and has pretty fat strings on it, it sounds closer to a bass than a guitar. Altough I should probably change that bit of logo at some point if I do more of these

That looks awesome Phil!
I'd probably lose the spalted covers on the back though, (personal taste).
