Acoustic Bass Project ...

We have come full circle with the Acoustic Bass Project for the Ziibiwing Center in Mt Pleasant MI. After working on the prototype, we are now on the final finishing of this beautifully figured Walnut/ Bearclaw Sitka Spruce Bass. Here are pictures taken before the filler & final finish spray.

You can see the inspiration for the rosette taken from pottery "A Woodland Floral" to honor the special hands that painted it. Can hardly wait to share pics of the fingerboard where we drew its inspiration from this same pottery collection.
