This is a neck-through 6 string bass featuring a 3 piece maple neck, alder body with walnut tone block, mahogany accents, figured maple top, and a morado fingerboard. The pics suck! I have no picture taking skills and I on’t know how to use my wife’s software to make them look good. This bass turned out great if I do say so myself. I usually don’t like neck-through instruments but this bass is changing my mind.

Nicely done. 6 string a little too much for me but it looks like a beast.
Are those Duncan’s in your other basses?

Thanks! TheFridge, in my other basses I have my own single coils that I wind. I really like the Aguilar pickups but will probably be using my own dual coils in the future with their preamp, when I use a pre that is.

Tight joinery super accurate work! I am sure it sounds as good as it looks!

Is this short scale? Looks good. I always get confused trying to play more than 4 strings lol. Neck through basses are the bees knees IMHO.

This is a gorgeous Bass! I am hoping to make myself an electric Ukulele at some point, or electro-acoustic, not sure as yet, maybe make 2…!
