The Dynamism Dog: reference points

Aside from the journey of reminiscing, I had several reference points for the Dynamism Dog: I've been reading up on the Futurists—Giacomo Balla's Dynamism of a Dog on a Leash is where the name of this bass comes from (I should also note that Bowie's Diamond Dogs played a hand in the naming as well—a CD I lost and had to replace for the library); Picasso's guitars; space; mid-century sci-fi…

The cedar band that runs perpendicular to the neck across the top of the guitar is actually a little nod to Matt Verta Ray's Hagstrom guitar. He has a piece of what looks like gaff tape running across the top of his guitar around the neck pickup. I'm not sure if it serves a purpose, but for some reason I think its cool.
