Liking the red wash. That's gonna' be nice with that blue inlay.  
 
I was just thinking, that must be a tricky operation masking off the inlaid logo, spraying coat(s) of red wash, then filling in with clear again so it builds evenly. Truly awesome, the detail.

Oh wow.   Those inlays are insane, as is that top wood.  Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

Very Nice! Looking forward to seeing the inlaid logo on the headstock. I think that's my favorite feature on this one. Tough call, with so many to choose from.

hey, wait a minute... is that a new sofa? :)

Another great bass is delivered to music.
The sound of Alembic is medicine for the soul!

Insanity.  I didn't get the email notification that new posts were made to this thread so I am JUST NOW seeing these latest pics for the first time!  I doubt I'll be able to work with any sense of interest tomorrow because I'll be drooling over these pics all damned day.  \m/ \m/

And the knowledge that the Hipshot tuner arrived on Friday won't help either. Looks like Tuesday is shipping day. Mary or I will call you to coordinate the arrival date.

Gorgeous bass Jerry! Congratulations! I love the inlays! I wish I would have known about the synthetic opal when I did my build, it would have looked great on my Blue Orca!
