AGP #366 - “Breathe”
(3 String Fretless Bass Guitar)
Scale: 762mm /30inches
Strings:.078NW/.052NW/.038NW/
Tuning : G / D / g /
The Timber is all recycled, and coated with a brush on French Polish, an 11.4k P Bass Pickup is hardwired to the Output Jack.
Saw the Pyrographed design on the Soundboard some time back, and was always going to incorporate it into a build one day, so here it is!, it is, as the name of this build suggests, the Sanskrit Symbol for Breathe, and as I do!, I couldn't stop there, so the words around the sides of the Box, are Sanskrit Sayings, was originally going to use the actual Sanskrit language, but found a pretty neat Sanskrit Type Font on the Web called Ananda Namaste.ttf and used that instead. :-)

"Thanks Rev & Denbo", love doing the recycled timber builds, a bit more work, but cheap as chips!   :-)

Thanks 'UJ', the Bass Tuners, Bridge & Pups have been sitting around waiting to be used for a number of years, the inspiration to do this build was (apart from the fact that I wanted to use them) a recent posting by Justin Johnson playing Van Morrison's "Moondance" on a similar solid body build, but decided to go with an Acoustic style, after watching recent postings of our old mate Dave Lynas and his 2 String Bass-Cello Build  :-)

Rich and gorgeous,  my friend.  Lovely wood tone, sound holes and head stock.  Oh, its a bass!  Hunh.   Those tuners are sure nice on there.
