This  bass is the the exact same woods as the first Chuck Israels Busetto, but it is ever so slightly wider in the upper bout and smaller in the lower bout.

41 1/16" string length

43 1/4" back body length

5  3/4" rib at neck

8 1/2" rib at end pin

20" width at upper bout

13 3/8" width at c-bout

26 5/8" width at lower bout.

Seth has a local machine shop drill 8 holes in the tuning machines. It takes several ounces off the weight of the scroll and they are still plenty strong!
