Forgive me Charles, but I just have to ask. If we have to wait, I certainly understand. What is this "Dragonfly" Mica speaks of?
Thanks! May it be all you want it to be.

Oh, no problem at all. Susan has designed a gorgeous dragonfly inlay that's going on the back of the headstock, which is the reason it's spalted maple, so as to provide more contrast.
Throughout the design process all our emails have had "Dragonfly" as the subject line, so I guess it's kind of become the name for the bass.
The bass itself is a 5 string Balance K with SII electronics.

Although it's not really evident with the (continuous wood) backplates removed (see build record thread), there is also a freaky insectoid face in the back wood.

That neck is amazing. I can't wait to see it finished.
