Outstanding looking guitar. You most certainly did a first class job on it and whoever buys it will be very proud.

Oh man… I hope I’ll be able to finish the guitars I’m making at least a bit as good as you did with this bass. The scrollwork on the bottom is a very interesting and nice feature, I think I will try something similar. Thanks for sharing and good luck on the sale.
