Here are a couple of shots of my new Series II (#12837) with a Europa body and a Quilted Cocobolo top. The wood is much more beautiful in real life -- and she sounds better than she looks!
A closer look...
Careful -- don't fall in!
And check out the headstock...

The quilted Coco Bolo is about as nice as it gets. Ive only seen it on one other guitar that was featured as a custom of the month I think. Both of those tops look great online, I wonder how much better it looks in real life?

I saw some quilted coco bolo up at Alembic a couple of weeks ago...it does look unbelievable up close, even unfinished...I think they have enough for one or two more instruments and that's it...if I win the lottery (7000$ for top & back, I believe) before they run out I'll have a bass made with it...

Just curious what the thickness of your body laminates are and what the total thickness is?

Nice series bass! That quilted coco bolo is definitely looking GOOD. I bet it sounds Great too... What's the layout for your controls?

Yes, the bass sounds HUGE! Sometimes, when no one is looking, I just hit the open "A" string and let it ring, over and over again...
The electronics are sort of the standard Series II controls...with a tweak. Each pickup has its own filter control and variable Q control, and there's a master volume (all standard on a Series II). The tweak is that I replace the standard volume control for each pickup and pickup selector switch with a master volume and pan control, which to me is simpler arrangement.
