8 String Bass

The newest project in the shop is an 8 string for Ryan Magoni. Ryan found a 4 String Schecter Stilleto body online and asked me to make him a replacement neck for the body. Since it was a 4 string body to begin with, I had to widen out the neck pocket to accomodate for a neck that is closer to a heel width of a 5 string.

The Schecter body is basswood with a Cherry finish over a maple burl veneer.

The neck and fret board are Bloodwood, Maple and Wenge. The neck is 5 pieces, the fretboard is 20.
