    Bumping this to say that my order is in the build stage (along with a LOT of others, judging by the pics he sent me) and Frank has been kind enough to offer choices on what specific pieces of wood I'm getting, which is pretty cool IMO!

    It's nothing super exciting, just a couple stacks of neck blanks. I'll share if I get the okay from Frank.

    I'm happy to report that while mine is not quite in the build stage, I've also had some great communication with Frank around woods/tops as we prepare to get things underway.

    Thanks again for the messages this weekend, Frank!

    Dear Frank, are non fanned six string basses with whatever pickups I want an option?

    Also I can't wait until these are in the wild.

    Cheers, Sam.

    6-string straight basses could be an option, in that we are able to go full custom here at the shop. But at this moment, we have received so many more orders than we could have anticipated, that I would put that kind of custom request off into the future at this stage.

    Though I DO have a 6-String Pau Ferro straight bass fingerboard in the climate room...

    Frank this is a little off topic, but do you have any recommendations on books or resources for guitar making? I am interested in trying to build one. How did you get started?

    Man, this is the closest I can come to sharing how I got started. It’s not helpful to most people. Lots of self-taught things, but forever in debt to the giants upon who’s shoulders I stand. Not sure if the mobile link I posted will work but it’s the first Luthierist Podcast I did if you have to search it out.
