    So I did try to play left handed but I'm afraid that its a little difficult even for an ambidextrial....

    So before the real video, I just recorded the bass this way, the video does not really pick up the real sound (i dont have a bass amp....)

    but for now here is a short video....

    you should film someone left-handed playing it, or at least get a hold of some clips some day :p

    i love how the notes sustain :agreed:

    I dont know why but all of a sudden, I was like...

    Build a new rear cover and leave it natural instead of black.... :idea:

    I just love european awk and sapeli mahogany blend together....

    haha, you are so obsessive about little ideas and stuff!

    "so, like, i was walking in the alps, and i happened to fall down a cliff and land on an ancient mammoth skeleton, so now my next guitars will ship with tuner knobs made from 10.000 year old mammoth tusks!!!"

    :D

    first it was the truss rod cover, then it was the new knobs for the V, now you come here with a control cavity cover :p

    i love that about your build threads! :)

    :lol:

    I just cant help it, because as soon as i think about this type of little detail I cant sleep untill I get to try it first :lol:

    Its like my brain is connecting to 1000000000 of information at the same time :lol:

    I remember once waking up at 3 in the morning because i could not sleep, i received some graphite the day before and i just went to the workshop like an idiot in a pijama just to know how sanding graphite feels like :)

    Very cool details Patrick. The bloodwood obsession is hard to heal right? :D

    Nice job man ,you brought a nice new entertainment to this forum. We all enjoy the build threads a lot .learn ,laugh and enjoy the progression.
    Drooling and attaining G.A.S might be the negative effects ,but nothing is perfect!

    Cheers!

    ok guys, here are the first pics of the customer and his bass:)

    Martin Süsstrunk from the band Nevborn

    Martin is very happy with the bass, he loves the neck and he also told me that he never heard so much sustain and punch attack in a bass which made me very happy:)

    So he kindly accepted to make a video which I will receive in a couple days hopefully:)
