I just noticed that the schaller  lightweight tuners are the same type as the ones i put on my eb4l.Like them a lot.Helped heaps,the originals weighed a ton.
You just can't believe everything you see and hear now can you?

That's perfect! It even goes to eleven. I'd leave the guard off since I find it more beatiful without. Too bad really because I also like the 'tip of the hat'-logo.

Thank you guys.
There have been several guys who prefer it without pickguard.
I think the pickguard belongs on this bass; the EB-0 has one and the Thunderbird has one.
But I do agree the wood underneath the pickguard is almost too pretty to hide behind a slab of plastic  ;)

Too bad it's long scale....

But it is probably the most beatutiful new bass I've seen in decades.
The pickguard looks great too, just a perfect instrument!

Yes, it's neck through. The faux neck joint heel may have fooled you.

Great work man, looks amazing! I'd like to see it with a black pickguard.  ;D

I did several tests for the pickguard. A friend of mine has access to a laser cutter and a cnc machine.
The pickguard on the left is the three ply pg. It was cut out with the cnc machine.
The pickguard in the middle is acrylic mirror, and it was cut with a laser. The flame was engraved on the backside of the mirror. Making it semi transparent.
The pickguard on the right is three ply birch wood, and it was cut out with a laser. The flame is literally burnt away form the top layer of the veneer.

The one on the left made it to the final pg.  But I had to work on the flame a bit :P

I love how the lines are cut all the way through. We got a laser cutter at the case shop a few months ago. I might have to play around with it.  ;D
