Ok so my wife says in order to get what I want, I have to either sell or trade.
The bass is a looker. 2011 DP Custom (April). Body:
neck-thru with sapelle wings (african mahogany) Top/Knobs:
Highly figured bubinga with sapwood Neck:
Six string w/ Maple/Walnut/PH laminates FB:
Gotoh tuners, generic high-mass bridge Pickups:
Barts (CB models)
I can't adjust to the six strings, and bass sounds more like a calllowhill-sadowsky-ken smith cross, which is too modern for me. Yea I should have known better with the wood choices and electronics, but the bubinga top the builder showed me, had me at 'HELLO'. Now I have to live with my GAS.
As with all Barts, the strings make or break this bass. Strung with DR Lo-ridahs and she sings.
The two minor imperfections that I point out in the pics actually look worse than they are. Otherwise no scratches or blemishes anywhere.
FS/FT Value: $1800.00 (Includes a crazy expensive gator case)
Lets see what options are out there. DP Custom Pics
