Yeah, that is Darth Shredder, dark lord of the DC145. He is the son of one of the moderators, I used to babysit him when his dad had a gig where children weren't allowed. I miss it, he was a lot of fun, now he's all grown up, and dosen't need a babsitter.

How's it goin', Rabih? Love that axe!

I was taking another hard look at my fretless, and noticed once again some killer grain on the rounded body side. Your axe reminded me of that.

Of course, I can't post a pic of that until 2015.

:mrgreen:

(so, Rabih, what's your next build? :stir: )

OK, so we get zebrawood, purpleheart and the Limbas to play with and we all get distracted with the shiny new wood.

Even so, no new Walnut guitars since December 2014?

Wassup with that?

Carvin PB5 fretted and LB75F fretless basses in walnut. Tung oil finish on the PB5, gloss clearcoat on the LB75F. (Sorry about the sideways picture... it's upright on my computer and for some reason the 90-degree rightward rotation option here on the BBS isn't working for me.)

I don't know if I count, but the back of my SCB is walnut, and the neck is maple with walnut stripes.
