here is a teardrop bass I built, to play in a 60's tribute band, it is a semi-hollow body made from poplar, maple neck, rosewood fret board. I made the head small as the Vox's teardrops are neck heavy and difficult to play, I did put a humbucker under the cover. it has a little more "sound" to it than the Vox's I have played, I like it a little better. very light compared to my walnut/ maple precision that I built. I did use " polyurthane" paint and clear coat, hoping it will yellow with some age. I have been leaving it in a south window so it will speed up the "ageing" a little. I am a hobbiest builder so be gentle. thanks
Say, now that has some mojo. I notice it has a nice humane fingerboard width, which makes it more comfortable than the last "Wyman" Vox paddle I played. More shots would be welcome.Soundfiles too. What scale did you build it to?
