When not carving pumpkins I make custom guitars and basses for people. I do all of my work by hand no cnc machines and such. I was working on a very involved project for a client. It was a six string bass with the neck and body being carved out of a single piece of wood (for the non musicians out there this is very unusual as most guitars have necks that are glued in or screwed into the body of the guitar. The only thing glued to this creation was the fretboard.
Anyhow this project took close to a year to complete and the owner is very pleased with the result. I also received a fair amount of recognition on the project from Best Bass Gear as I was awarded Bass of the Week for this project

Sweet bass!

I love using Bubinga in my wood shop when ever I can.

Love the sound! Hella punch on that thing!

Extraordinary work, well worth the praise and recognition. Glad the article included a shot of the bass's back.
