Thank you.

Time for a bass one-off, wouldn't you say?

I love the absence of the pickguard that would be blocking up the pretty wood.
Nice job on the finish as well! This is one of my favorite one-offs,

That maple body look stunning, almost as if burl maple. You can see in the grain that it would have been from an old tree with a high density, it will show a beautiful patina over the years. It would sustain well. I wonder how much it weighs. Impeccable finish on that axe, well done! It almost looks like it's had a light Monte splash,,,,very cool~

Wow! Is that cool or what! How about offering a six-string version of that?

Nice, seamless transition from the wings to the neck-through. I like that RIC didn't do a skunk strip on this one; IMO it would have detracted from the finish and grain.

Maple fingerboard, and a curly one at that, and with inlays-COOL!

That finish and trim/hardware combination complement each other nicely. :)

Ben, if you're hinting at a similar, cousin-ish bass for a one-off. . . C O O L ! ! ! ! !

Another one-off bass is definitely in order. We have a few interesting ideas.
