that top is pretty impressive, is that the shape of the guitar drawn out on it? seems kind of strange for a bass but i'll be eager to see how it turns out.

Can I hazard a guess as to say this will have tiger eye finish? Because that finish is f**king amazing over quilted maple, it just has to be done!

Any chance you could make another video making it? I watched the of the multi scale, I reckon if I watch it 8 or 9 times it might make my build less......shit One day, I will have an Ormsby guitar!
#12

WHAT SHAPE? WHAT FINISH! Sorry..... I think I made another mess contemplating what your going to do.... sorry....

Excellent job!

yes, yes we are

now give us some more bloody details mate

That wood looks nice, that inlay looks sweet too.
If you're calling it "the tiger", the quilt should be black/brown/orange, where its mostly black and orange but to fade between them theres a bit of brown. (idk if that's the way its done. i'm a noob at this)
I dunno if that would be possible... black+orange=ugly, but you're a master of this stuff, so i imagine you'll find a way to make it look awesome.

EDIT: i just realized your client probably already decided on the finish... i was kindof just ranting about how I would make it.

either way its awesome! can you shed some light on your inlay technique, I'de love to be able to do complex stuff,

do you just get templates, stick one to the fretboard score round is with a sharp knife and then cut out the middle, and then the same on the inlay, but keeping it a touch bigger than the slot in the f/b, I dont understand how people can get the two to match so closely, also do you engrave stuff and fill it with black super glue or epoxy or something? I'de really appreciate a lil insight

I believe I've seen that picture as well, and while it is nice enough I'd agree there are minor touches that still need to be done to make it stand out above the crowd. For instance, I remember how you lined up the "grain" of the shell you used on the shark guitar to make it flow with the shape of the inlay to give it a perceived third spatial dimension. I can see you already did some of that on your tiger and the bulrush heads too, and with such a sense of detail in mind I'm sure you've got an eye on what this lil' cat needs.
