This shows the RockBeach 5-string bass with the neck just sitting on the neck pocket extension which is much longer than it will be when finished. The body is myrtle top and back with tulip poplar midsection.

I notice there is a fairly large gecko on the fretboard... Nice touch. Is it going to remain just wood or will there be some "fancification?"
