Swamp ash body with bookmatched flame maple top. Neck is birdseye maple
with a 1/4" walnut center stripe. Fingerboard and tailpiece are
Macassar ebony. Finish is general Finishes Arm-R-Seal (the same stuff
David Marks uses). The design is meant to capture the flavor of an
upright bass, but more compact. The neck can actually be removed. The
bass is almost completed, but needs a little electronics and setup work.
Most acoustic bowed instruments (violin, viola, cello, double bass) are
traditionally the same ... nut, bridge and saddle of wood (traditionally
ebony in the case of the nut and saddle).
It's indeed a beautiful piece of work ...
