  1. Oof... I've always admired ACG basses for being both interesting but classy at the same time. Most luthiers seem to pick one or the other, and are either too garish or too boring! Very nice indeed!
  2. Looking forward to seeing this, I seem to be leaning towards rustic looking instruments at the minute
  3. Couldn't think of another name - seemed fitting!
  4. Wow, certainly looks different!
  5. One thing I will share is the oak for the fretboard - rather looking forward to seeing this with finish:
  6. Bit of a mysterious one as I have no progress pics (as of yet), but stuck this here as an eventual (near future!) build diary for my next project. I've owned and played all sorts of less conventional basses, but I've never owned a passive 4 string J or P bass. So I've decided that's what I'm going to build for myself next! Leaning towards jazz at the moment, but that may change the closer I get to pickup routing. Got all the wood stacked in the spare room - gone slightly less conventional with wood choices, tried to use local where I can. So at the moment, it's going to be 34" scale 4 string with: English cherry body English rippled pear wood top English ash/English sycamore laminated neck Quartersawn English oak fretboard Updates to come in the near future!
  7. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 1 post to view.
  8. Ah, cheers. Shame the closest Axminster to me is about 3 hours away 🙁 not many local hardwoods suppliers near me, certainly none supplying appropriate sizes for guitar/bass building. Thank goodness for the internet!
  9. Is that in store or online? Not seen any timber on the website
  10. Might be a coffee table, but what a damn fine coffee table it is 😍 it oozes quality just from the photos. Big fan of KS basses. Congrats!
  11. Really looking forward to seeing the final result
  12. Cheers. One of the nicest black fades I've seen with burly wood
