Here's the latest plan for your bass:

Yahya's Big Bass
Please note we adjusted the joining point for the upper body half to the 17.5 fret position, instead of the original 17.0 we did in person. This small change will make a world of difference to the carvers and to the shape of the heel. I hope it meets with your approval.

Your neck should be coming off the run this week, so if we get the body shape oked, we can get right to work. Thanks!

It was really great to see you up at the shop again. I think all the modifications and refinements were really worth it:

I am curious what the outer laminates are on the neck-interesting color combination

They are Mahogany. Yahya really like the little Brown Bass style Stanley Clarke models. We started with the woods from that model, added the Ebony neck laminates, a custom body shape and 35" scale narrow spaced 5-string neck.

Wait until you see that top with the paint on it! The back is a successive slice.
