    The new Mjollnir 6-string from Thor Bass (www.myspace.com/thorbass) is coming together. The pickups have arrived from Sweden (http://www.nordstrandpickups.com/bass-pickups/signature/) and the neck is getting cut out. The body sides have already been put together and are made from the same cut of wood as the 5-string I had made in 08 (which you can see in the build thread here: http://www.talkbass.com/forum/showthread.php?t=402649). Photos courtesy of Karl's Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?ref=profile&id=572647901#!/KarlThorkildsen. Also seen is the Northman himself digging up the remains of the tree trunk used to make the bass from his own forest up in the remote wilderness of cold New England.
