The neck on 18 is phenomenal looking! But of the existing collection, the bass that is most "me" would be #16

Maybe i've built too many of these, I actually have to go back to the thread to remember which s/n is which bass. I have no problem remembering which bass is which up until 014 after that it gets all hazy :peep:

001 and 002 are my personal basses and are essentially the ones I learned on (so quality is so so, especially on the first one) There's no threads on them exisiting on any forum but I did have a Geocities website from '03 until Yahoo closed them down a few years back where you could see the whole builds. I think there's still a page or two that exists on it somewhere on the web. Anyway, I should probably put them up for the sake of keeping track of all of them. I'll check it out tonight

Thanks Maxgroover ! :-)

#20 floats my boat in many, many ways :-)

Wonder if that body shape would work with a Nordy P pickup and a Nordy MM humbucker pickup?

How do you pick one? I can't pick one especially seeing them all together.

I'm still kicking myself for not grabbing that minty jazz with the wide neck
