    I love the body design, very unique and artisitic. The long lower horn looks good for balance and for shifting the bass to the right to help with tapping.

    Yeah the proportions look so crazy. 40-25 right? Impressive. I can't wait to receive my 8 string from him very very soon

    I wish there where more updates. I get a feeling this will impload on its self like every other attempt on a 13 string. Although this is the closest I have seen to really going thru with one. This has potential to being the first working 13-string non octave bass made

    ^ It wont. Jon is a great dude. The scale lengths are made to work, as opposed to other even 12 string basses where players such as Yves Carbonne have trouble with the highest string. It will be awesome. Not only that but there's 3 of them being made as far as I know - one of which is for Jean Baudin :D

    Not as much of a fan of this one, though, I've never been an explorer guy in the first place.

    The angular body and the extreme fan combined make the bass look like it's in the process of tearing itself apart; when I look at the drawing I get the feeling the whole thing is going to contort into some impossible shape and then cease to exist. That, of course, is probably a plus to some.

    Hehe that design may not be serious or intended for produvtion ... don't know yet, it could be. Body seems too big vertically to me, considering the size of this monster.

    ha ha. I was actually quite keen to go with this. It is just a ps mockup with nothing organic going on like in real life. The explorer shape is perfect for this type of fan. Like it or not! :)
    Anyway, it didn't happen this time. Maybe next time eh? ;)

    Dear lord! All that wenge on a 13-string must weigh a ton! :D

    I'm stoked to see and hear the finished product!

    That looks awesome! I'm surprised how playable an instrument with so many strings and such a wide fan looks. Can't wait until it's completed.

    Edit: Is that piece at the bottom of the body attached or a custom stand?
