That's what I figured.

And you'd be getting something truly unique built from the blocks up.

Or maybe somethings truly unique: A fretless and fretted pair might be had for a wedge that big, might even be able to get matching tops & all sorts of wonders...

This bass is simply stunning. Visually everything just works perfectly, from the warmth of the colours to the modern hardware. The craftsmen ship is, from the diary, absolutely top notch and I can only imagine it'll sound superb. 

We all like different features but there is nothing on this bass I could imagine changing. 

Absolutely perfect. 

🙂👍

If I charged £8k for a build, I'd feel obliged to give the new owner my car as well, which wouldn't please MrsAndyjr1515 a great deal....  ;)

Matching phoenix tail feathers for the neck cores?

Looking at the bottom of the article at the other links: I think it's his 4th one too. Surely there aren't any other non-production bass makers with that many?

Thanks folks!

Yes - I'm really pleased.  And yes, let's shed any pretence of false modesty, it's my 5th :party:    Kert, of this parish, started it all off by submitting the Camphor Single Cut I built for him. 

I'm sure that No Treble must think I have some small industrial unit somewhere churning these things out...let's hope they don't ever do a "Builder's Workshop" feature xD  

"And as we go down the stone steps to the dark small cellar space, taking up most of the available space pushed up against the wall is a single, small workbench.  When asked whether this was all there was, Rogers replied that it was, in the words of Monty Python, 'LUXURY!' compared to the rickety Workmate sited at the bottom of the pond using nought but the brick he used to use!"

Anyway, must rush - I have to stop strangers in the street to shout to them over the masked social distance to 'cop a look at the No Treble website.'  :lol:

What grit did you used to sharpen your brick to?

Asking for a friend.
