    Since the Vampyre already pays homage to violin luthiers (albeit, gothic ones!), I thought it might be cool to render one with f-holes.

    Can you imagine a semi-hollow Vampyre? ;)

    Oh wow that looks incredible. Especially with the blue.. not a traditionally gothic colour choice but somehow makes the whole thing look "darker" in a sense. Somebody order this :p

    In theory it would look great, and probably sound alot like an infinity, but i'd highly recommend putting the strap button at the end of the horn as the body would be even lighter and the balance would get worse (horizontal) than it already is on a Vampyre.

    Otherwise, sign me up! Oh, make the neck solid wenge too. The stock all maple Vampyre is too bright by itself...man im picky!

    I must say, you guys collectively kickass! :)

    I've been on/off Talkbass since 2008 and I really, really wish that I would've discovered this forum back then!

    Man you are going to need a lead bridge to stop the headstock pointing at the floor with a hollow body.

    The Brass bridge should help :)

    And no silver frets on it, Brass only. Vampyres don't like it that much I have heard :p
