I have been contemplating an all-hog DC145 with a Floyd in black hardware for either the youngest or the oldest for some time now.

Here's an all-hog bass.

What a beauty. Some of us appreciate plain-wood with oil. Ok, maybe many of us do. Further, I dig the idea of the entire instrument being one type of wood, period, oiled. Feast your eyes on this beauty.

This is one of my faves as well. There's just something so raw, natural, and primal about it.
Love the grain in the body as it's my kind of Mahogany right there.
I've kicked around an all 'hog bass as well and spotted this one the first time I saw it in the GIS pics. Such an understated beauty!
