Bob decided to do this one slightly different from the last one. Since this design had a top laminate, he cut the design with a scroll saw much like the continuous wood backplates. The fit is extremely good, and very soon I'll be able to post a picture of the body's front view.

That's very nice! The accent between the main top laminate and the body sets the whole thing off really nicely.

You know, I'm starting to think there needs to be section in Showcase titled "Adam's Basses". The hits just keep coming!
