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 Paul", I'm not much of a Bass Player, but I'm sure this one will grow on me with a bit of practice!   :-D
