Hi Pete.

I was wondering about the origins of the Whale Cut. Usually when I think of a single cut instrument, I think neck-through, and yet my Whale Cut is obviously a bolt on. Was there a driving idea behind the idea for a bolt-on single cut? I certainly like what I hear, but I'm curious if the design makes a difference in the tone.

Just trying to find out more about this great new bass I've been fortunate enough to acquire.

Thanks,
J.

Hey Justin

Great question , it comes up often .

It was my intention to make it a set neck , but when I saw what it did to the neck when connected to the body so high up ( it ends up putting a small hump on the bass side and a twist twords the treble .) . So I ended up just bolting the prototypes and have never looked back . I don't know how it would sound glued or neck through and frankly I don't care Razz . I really like having the neck free to move the way it is supposed to and the sound is really what I was going for anyway . The added wood and mass do influence the tone too .


Pete
