    It took me a long time to let Gard and the boys finish this one! For a while there, I needed another 4-string in stock like I needed a hole in the head. After I moved a couple other basses, this one finally got the green light. It's here as of this morning, and it is fabulous!

    Absolutely fabulous spec. Well done! Alder and rosewood do for my ears what amber and rosewood do for my eyes. Slurp.

    Those ball ends. You guys got 'em kinda-sorta-in-the-ballpark just to mess with me, didn't you?

    You had to make that comment Jerry. I was doing really well waiting for my alder/rosewood creation until you had to go and say that. You're also making me revisit the question of natural vs. amber stain, though I tend to prefer amber under gloss and natural if it's going to be oil. Hmm :meh:

    I'm just here to help. ;) FWIW, these pics have totally made me rethink my next spec. Just when I think I've got it dialed in, boom....fresh pics of a really nicely thought-out and executed instrument.

    Feel free to weigh in over on http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f153/e049-924509/ considering the top and the rest of the spec. Natural oil is the current idea, but dark amber, amberburst... could all work.

    I agree, this one turned out really nice!

    Just beautimous! And looking at that second pic, I'd totally guess the body is mahogany. Wow...
