I'll make sound clips (or a video) when I have it 100% ready.

Here's the idea:

Mahogany body and glued in mahogany neck for warmth
Quarter Pound single coil for powerful output, punch and growl.
Pickup in the StingRay position for bite / aggression.

The tone pot is the secret weapon. You can dial from dark / growly to clear bite.
Favorite position is between 3 an 4 on the potentiometer.

Good work bud; that's sexy as hell.  Never seen a truss rod adjustmwent like that in the middle of the last fret.

The bass is finally ready. It took me a while to get the frets levelled and crowned. But now she's all good.
Here's a quick demo.

EDIT:
(the video from last night as a bit too dark and not tuned properly. So here's a new one)

Nice bass and good job on Ride on a pony. Surprisingly balanced tone for a single pickup back by the bridge.
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

Nice!

Is that a custom import?

Google is not helping me here.

Haha, no it's homebrew.

WOW!!!

Really nice!

By the way, my post was meant to read "was that a custom or a one-off import?"

The spokewheel truss-rod adjustment is a really unusual choice.

I like it a lot.
