    Everything is. Body still needs polishing.

    Bass will be done within the next few days.

    ... The waiting is on the stainless controlplate to be laser cut, polished and delivered.
    Its proportions and layout have been fed into the computer last friday.
    I do not know when we will see it surface. The waiting is argh.

    OK tested and picked it up tonight. Final setup will happen in a couple of days.
    The bridge pickup acts as I hoped it would and can be growly like a humbucker, trebly for a more Stingray like tone and of course be single coil on either the front or rear coil which does make quite a difference between them.
    Neck pickup sounds deep, lively and articulate. Very happy with that as well.
    Bass has a great tone acoustically, very resonant and it has sustain for days.


    Proper photos (where I cleaned off the dust) coming later, but here it is on our kitchen table for some quick pictures:
