Guys. The lowriders are perfect for lack of better description. I have not found anything that bothers me about them. And I am very observant with my personal axes. I just don't go into those long detailed post
I have decided to sell my FBass in 6 months............
For another Fbass!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very happy to announce that Mr. Bankhead over at fretspot.com is currently working with George as we speak in order to get my bass started ASAP!!!!
Before I go into specs, I would like to talk about Donovan Bankhead. Donovan had noticed that I said I wanted the same bass as mine, but with an ebony fretboard. He sent me a PM saying he could make that happen. Now, I'm in the proccess of moving, I need a new car, I am inrolling in school to study jazz theory and I just quite my job. On top of that, I just got my Fbass like 2/3 weeks ago!!! However, when Donovan sent me that one tiny PM, it got the wheels turning. He has been the most helpful guy I have ever dealt with. I plan on opening a small shop myself in about 5-7 years and I must say, if I run my business anything like him........ I'll be doing just fine. He is honest, fair, and he has GAS!!!!!! He is not as salesman...... He is a gear nut. If you go to his website and read how he became a dealer you will see that he's just a gear nut like us!!!!!
I'm sure that you guys are like me, you love your bass, but it's cooler knowing that it was built for you. And if you had the chance to get a GREAT trade-in on your current F, then order a new one with slightly different specs...... You would jump on it!!!!!
He gives you good money on your trade-in. It's just part of his self made policy. It's really genius. He also sells the F at the lowest price allowed from George.
Long story short, he is the man. I will be back to do business with him again.
On with the specs ( hey D, let me know if I forgot anything)
11 pounds is what I'm shooting for.
Natural with Black enhanced grain (I want a nice straight grain that's busy
Crystal finish (new harder finish)
Matching Ramp (the pickups and ramp will be one-piece in apperance)
All black hardware
Hipshot A stlye bridge
Colorful maccasscar ebony Fret Board
Smaller fret-wire ( about the size of lakland)
I think that's all. Sam bass as mine just tweaked a bit to make it perfect IMO.
