This was a project that was originally made for a Benefit auction for the local PBS station in Rhode Island.
All the wood in this bass is reclaimed except for the leopardwood fretboard. The body is made from a reclaimed red oak door that was given to me and the neck is reclaimed hard maple from an old conference table my landlord had in his backyard that he gave to me. The pattern on the body is accomplished by laminating square stock and making oblique cuts. I finished the fretboard with West System Marine Epoxy to keep the strings from denting the wood too much. The body is finished with tung oil. Completed in 2009
