So, here's the new baby! Been playing it since late June, and its become the go to bass for me.
Redheart top, then black walnut, mahagony core and neck. The rest is ebony and a little bit of bloodwood pinstriping.
Pete was super helpful with the options and was great at talking through all the process and answering my endless questions!
Good luck in California Pete!
