Indeed the upper bow collides with my breast. Let's see how far i'll be able to compensate by thorough cont...

Re: Five String Flying V bass

And how do You deal with the neck heaviness of the V?
I am still fiddling around a bit with the strap pin positions of my Vs (guitar and bass, both semi-hollow).

Re: Ergonomic bass designs

By the way, did you mention for whom this guitar would be made? I am a DIY builder and make this instrument for myself. Do you have some particular tendon or joint issues that require such a design? I have. In my left lower arm. Not on guitar but on bass - i cannot play scale lengths above 32" (fre...

Re: Ergonomic bass designs

considering all these suggestions i think much of the details of the cutouts depends on the desired playing position. Hunter's guitar, for example, seems to be optimized for the flat position on the right leg he prefers (which apperas logical regarding the long scale of his instrument and his playin...

Re: Ergonomic bass designs

Re: Five String Flying V bass

Thanks for the welcome; i am indeed new and intend to use this forum occasionally when it comes to sharing info or seeking help in special questions which might be of broader interest - respecting the high level i see here. Most of my build threads are communicated in two german forums.

Best

Re: Ergonomic bass designs

That's a very interesting design, thank You - and very appealing. Remarkably: again this short distance from the strings to the legs while sitting. and the position of the "leg cutaway".

Re: Five String Flying V bass

Nice build. Which scale? Short as done by Gibson?
