So my boyfriend, Tim, got a violent shove into Rockabilly-ness ((hurrah to me)) and has decided he wants his very own double bass.
We bought a plain 'shell' i guess you'd call it from Ilja Grawert ((a violinmaker in the Gabba)) for just under a thousand. It was bigger than we thought and more sturdy which is two good things!
Yesterday we went to Bunnings to pick out paint. Tim has decided to paint it gloss black with green leopard print sides. He needs more practice with his leopard printing so at the moment he's painting leopard-spots on my new flowerpot.
Anyway, he started the undercoat last night and has done the first coat of the black this morning. He loves itmore than me which is fine because then i can flip through as much craftster as i want!!
So far so good!
edit:: Tim would like me to keep updating this post as he goes along. he's pretty chuffed you all think its so good
