I surprise myself mate, if I could just apply this skill to something useful...

Merged. Thread remains under Bass Guitars (a link remains under Gear Porn). :)

My own naturals:

Warwick Corvette Pros, originally 'twins', until I changed the fretted to black hardware.

Bass Collection and Rockbass Corvette.

I don't think anyone's managed to beat @blablas's collection yet! :D 😎👍

This started as a slab of ash, currently carving some curves into it so it will be a lighter, contoured 51 P to be finished in natural.

This will become something - not sure what yet.....

Is that:

a walking bass-encyclopedia

or

a walking-bass encyclopedia?

Love the workmanship on that Smith btw.  Tempted to buy one just to stroke it.  Incredible value for the quality of work.

This thread has made me realise that apart from acoustics, this is the only natural wood finish I've got.
