Great work Blaine and Ben :yep

Blaine, you're just missing some sort of logo. A bit of fancy inlay work would fit just nicely :thumbup:

Thanks Ivan, I have a logo all sorted and a piece of luminary sheet to make it out of. Just time and effort required oh and one David Searle too.
... dial in some "J" to angry it up!

Got gear but little talent!

Congratulations to Gus.
He's our first student to finish an instrument in the new workshop at Melbourne School of Guitar Making! Gus has created a 34" 4 string of his own design. The body is mahogany with satin black nitro. The neck is Maple with a Macassar ebony fretboard. The bridge is an 'A' style Hipshot, the tuners are Gotoh and the pickups are Aguilar split jazz bass. onboard preamp is a Mike Pope.

It plays like butter and sounds like a MACK TRUCK!

Cheers, David.

Great job, Gus, can't wait to see the others in the pipeline progressing.

"Moby Dick" would be a fitting name :-) .
