    What's on YOUR workbench right now?

    Finished this one last week. First prototype of my new bass design. Heavily inspired in both 52 precision basses and rickenbacker basses. Fully hand made, body is made out of lenga, a local patagonian wood ( I live in Esquel, Chubut, a southwestern town in argentinean Patagonia), very much alike...

    The Moderne - Holy Grail of Vintage Guitars

    wow, already hooked to this build. I've been trying to build my bass version of the moderne for quite some time, but never got to it.
