Still go tall this for sale.

It's also been pointed out that it's probably not Brazilian Rosewood, but is Rosewood.

Rob - Don't panic!

Steve - that has a certain Je Ne Sais Quoi. How much have you been offered by the Tate?

The Wenge certainly is (probably get a 6 out of it) as is the Fingerboard. I will try and measure up tonight if I get a minute. I'm silly busy every Mon - Weds, then twiddle my thumbs on a Thurs/Fri!

Oh dear you're giving me some ideas!

Hi Rob - no panic I am sort of hoping the neck blank isn't wide enough for a 5 string so I can stop thinking about it as even being a remote possibility that I might make something.

If that started as figured maple, it has indeed been quite a while ;)



Lovely top nonetheless, that is going to make one loverly looking bass.
