These pics are with about 8 coats of true-oil on the body. I went up to 16, then buffed with 3m finesse it.

Wiating on a few screws from stew mac and have to put the tuners on the neck. Then it can be done....






(How do you get a good size image from Imgur? when I use 'original', it's too big. This is 'large square', which is kind of small....)

Really love Truoil for a natural finish, just brings out the beauty of the wood. Great job on this bass. Awesome

Looks great!!

First pic I didn't know what those colored randomly shaped items were, then I realized HAND HOLDS for a climbing wall.

Very cool top piece. That's going to be a killer looking bass.

Exactly! My daughters are climbers. We have a climbing wall on the side of our garage. The holds in that pic are waiting to get added to the wall.

Wood and truoil, two things that are meant to be together. That looks fantastic!

That is nice, basses with exotic woods always look nice. Electric guitars with exotic wood could be hit and miss for me.
