Hi Tom,

I sent you a message. Not sure if I did it right or not. Just wanted to talk a bit more about your Big Bottom Bass. I may be interested in buying it.

Thanks, Tom.  The bass sounds good and seems to have good intonation.  I need a real bass player to check it out.

   Got my fretless 3 string, 30 inch bass done.  Seems okay to good.  Need to get with a bass player friend to have him tell me what it needs to improve it.  Thanks!

Hi Tom,  Nice to have you for a nation friend.  I looked at your photos and vids and remembered commenting on your 'Brothers' photo.   Good vids, Nasty is very good.  Your big bottom 3 string bass interests me as I am working on a 30 inch scale 3 string bass.  I don't know much about basses....  Fun to see your back in the day photo and to see you now.

Hey Tom, I was checking out the builds, nice work.

I have always craved something with that vintage Tele "twang". How does your version sound, in comparo?

Really like that rustic vibe in your work. I would love to have one of those works of art!

It is alright to post your submission on the disscussion page too if you like, but please send your photo and contact information to
It is much easier for me to keep this project organized. Thank you for your contribution.
