Until last night, not a whole lot visible as far as progress is concerned. Finish has been applied (five coats) and buffed out and now Evil Twin is ready for fretwork and final assembly.

It's kind of hard to believe it's been one year since I'd delivered the first bass to Aaron from Breaking Benjamin. There's something about being able to waking up and checking out the usual social media feeds and seeing my work on stage; I really can't describe how awesome it is. Here's a quick candid shot my wife snapped the first time I heard that fist bass over the house system at 20 Monroe Live over in Grand Rapids, MI.

On to current business!

Completed the final sand out last night and then put the first coat of finish on the electronics covers and the instrument this morning. 

Two more progress shots for the week before a quick weekend getaway! I can't wait to get this into finish; only cutting the electronics cover, drilling the bridge and string through mounts, and drilling the tuner holes remain before I get to start.

Finished the carving of the neck, heel, and belly cut contours last night. Gotta say, I'm real happy with how this one is looking.

Got Evil Twin out of the clamps, trimmed the headstock to dimension, and started the contours on the neck and the heel transition. On a side note, a #7 spoon gouge will make stupid quick work of a heel transition. In the photos you can see a pretty nice before and after (note: the contours aren't quite final yet).
