Agreed! The fishtail's pretty cool as well.

Major progress. Frets in. Body routed (but scoop out still to be added). Back routed. Robbie is still waiting for the long-delayed custom bridge from his supplier - hope this doesn't turn out to be a problem!

Now, when I said "in the post " on 22 March, what I should have said was "will be in the post on 11 May" :-(

Anyway, Robbie has been a star and shown great customer service, given the grief he has been getting from one of his suppliers.

The bridge is now in the post, and there is photographic evidence :-)

Those ETS bridges look the mutts nuts! They do the individual ones and even do headless hardware, but Ive heard they were having problems hitting customer deadlines, which is a real shame.

Courtesy of Robbie, latest pictures showing bridge and tailpiece not just delivered but trial fitted on my bass. Happiness :-) Thanks, Robbie.

That's rather fetching.

There's something about Robbie's basses that scream workhorse while still retaining the custom vibe of it. The headstock is slowly growing on me as well.
