Would you consider making Mustang bass mute? It’s a folded thin metal sheet with holes. With your skills and resources, it shouldn’t be too hard. I know there is a market for it.
Thanks! I did some looking around, and while I agree it might be a fairly easy piece to fabricate, I'm not certain there is much of a market. Your best bet might be to post a feeler thread and see who might be interested and go from there. :)

I always get a kick out of seeing my designs used in a build, whether it's a conversion neck or an 8-string bridge. :)

Yeah, that's pretty cool! Launching the 8-string bridge has introduced me to people with dreams I would never have imagined. :)

I mocked up the standard 2+2 with machines and a logo in MS Paint. I really like it.
