Hi everyone. My name is Carl and I am an alcoho....nowait. That's not it. :rofl:

I'm a guitar and bass builder living in Finland with my family. I've built about seventeen instruments (to date) and modified a countless number since I was 14 (a LONG time ago). I've a good electronics knowledge, having built effects boxes from scrap as a teenager and studied electronics at A level. For my sins I've worked on various environmental projects including the Stratford Olympic site, etc.

I'm a genuine rocket scientist and firmly believe that you can achieve anything if you set your mind to it. I am perhaps a little lacking in the doing side, thanks to finances and limited resources at the moment, but I'll take over the world Pinky and The Brain style sometime soon. :D

As long as people can stand my incessant rantings, musings and rocket scientist-ry I think that also. :-D

At the moment, nothing I'm afraid. My specific point of interest is research into the SB basses as I'm planning on making one this year - most likely a Black n Gold. The local kansalaisopisto ("civil college") are running a woodworking and metalworking course this summer, so I will be replicating the bridge whilst I'm at it. I tend to think into things WAY too much, so in addition I will play a little with brewing pickup and preamp configurations. I doubt the bass will end up being a true SB in anything other than the wider look, but it will definitely wear its heart on its sleeve. I like unlocking these little challenges. :D

As a further development from this, I may make a small project run of retrofit replica bridges if there is enough call for them. Many of the originals have pretty much petrified by now. :rofl:
