I was looking for an extraordinary vision, which can both keep the character of the wood and make you feel that you are holding in your hands something that came out from another world. Achieving such a difficult outcome turned out to be a serious adventure. So I asked my friend Jeff Stratton to join the project. He enthusiastically accepted the idea and...here we are!
I must mention two very important things:- the body shape is 10mm wider and 20mm longer in order to keep the bass ballanced;- no chemicals or fire/burning techniques were used during the treatment of the body surface in order to avoid damage the wood itself or a change of its properties.

"Thumb nest" is a very special feature, which I invented in 2011. I usually make a small wood carving on a certain place on the back side of the headstock, somewhere between the tuners, which is some kind of KD's trade mark. This time I decided to make something completely different. I turned the decorative element to a very useful and helpful feature, which I called a Thumb nest.I meet musicians every day and all of them have their own biological individualities. Like the lenght of the fingers, the way they hold the neck while playing - due to these specifics for some musician playing can represent a serious difficulty. So I decided to do something in order to find out a solution of the problem.Then I came up with the Thumb nest idea. It took me some time experimenting on it, but the outcome was more than successful! It provides an incredibly easy access to the first frets, making the hand flow on the neck and unleashes a great freedom while playing. And the most important thing - makes the musicians Happy!
