Looks good now, will look FABULOUS in blue, and I really dig the Blue Orca inlay.

Ya know, Rusty, speaking as an expat-Texan to a still-residing-in-Mother-Texas citizen (especially since we're both from East Texas), it occurs to me that we should possibly consider forming an 'Texas Society of Alembics in Color' , so we can separate ourselves somewhat from our esteemed colleagues who are unfortunately doomed to

a) not be from Texas, and

b) live with B R O W N guitars and basses.

Whoops, gotta go, 'Giant' is coming on next on TCM !

Hardware was completed and is en route to the plater right now.

I was reviewing the colors with Bob this morning, so color is coming very soon. I'll share pics as soon as there is something see :-)

Hey Mica, quick question, when I was there last month I didn't notice the holes for the side mounted jacks, although I didn't specifically look for them (I was too much in awe of the inlays to think about the jacks!) so I wanted to make sure they get drilled before the final finish is sprayed. Thanks!

There is more to come, but this is how it all starts.

I love the hint of blue color. I bet it will look even better down the road, but if it were mine, I could stop right here!

Thanks Edwin! I love the hint of blue too, but I want it fully "Tangled Up In Blue!" Just like Steve's masterpiece. Hopefully today being Friday, Mica will bless me with more pictures!

Rusty...... Rusty..... Wake up.!!!!
I'm sure Rusty is asleep but I can't be certain if it's because he is tired or has seen the pictures and passed out. :-)
It's looking great.

Such spectacular quilt, with Blueburst. Feel like I am at the beach close to the sound of nature and bass! Congratulations. It looks quite awesome

Jazzyvee, I know you are shocked that I wasn't checking my build every hour (that is my usual routine!) I have been deathly ill the last 2 days & didn't even feel like getting on my computer to look at the pictures. I went to the emergency room last night with 104.5 fever & I thought I was going to die before I had a chance to play this incredible bass! I'm a little better today but still ill.

Mica, I have already responded to your email, but let me say publicly thank you so much for posting the pictures & for the amazing job y'all are doing on my bass! If it looks this good in pictures I can only imagine how good it looks in person!

Thanks Jazzyvee! I'm back among the living today with only 101.5 fever, but still not well. I did finally feel good enough to get out of bed & check my thread. Hopefully i'll continue to heal & get my strength back.

Keep yer eye on the prize, buddy.

Healing starts in the mind - so just keep thinking about this magnificent instrument (and the music you will make with it) and block out all thoughts of illness.

You'll be back to normal in no time.

Well, Mica called & said my bass will be completed & ready for pickup tomorrow, so I feel amazing!!! No......that must be the fever talking! LOL! Seriously though I am MUCH better today, fever down to around 99 & got up & ran some errands today & survived Taco Bell for supper, so I think I'm going to live! Thanks again for your prayers & well wishes! Now if I can just get that bass built........ :-)
