Building the Caligari Bass
Liam has been extraordinarily lucky that Jack Read believes that it is
important to keep in touch with customers who are overseas. Jack is halfway
around the world, in the United States of America, but he sends over a new
set of progress pictures each week. You can follow the process of building
the Caligari Bass on these pages, watching with Liam as it takes shape.
Note that many of these pages are quite graphic intensive and may take
some time to download.
Big News! The Caligari Bass is complete!
(The remainder of the building pages will be added over time. Edit: Not only
has it been years since I last updated these pages, a hard drive crash has removed
all of the pictures Jack had sent me, as well as the notes I had on the process; it
seems unlikely I will ever finish this photo story.)
