    Oscar I thank you a million times over for creating with just an incredible passion of art a musical instrument that speaks of the spirit of a luthier with a hundred years of experience, a hundred years of that very experience that you already possess as a builder.

    It really is an extremely well crafted instrument that shows in so many ways.

    Yeah Jauqo, that is an awesome pic. And as someone who has had a chance to play the 15, the sound is awesome and it plays very nice.

    Oscar makes wonderful basses. It's hard to believe these are passive instruments!

    Yes it is.

    ;)

    Thank you Harold.

    Yes he does Roy.

    My introduction to Oscars talent as a builder was thru my good friend bassist Garry Goodman, who was telling about this killer 6 string passive Prat bass that i have got to check out. So the next day I get the opportunity to play that string bass and I was blown away by it, my friend Garry was really digging it and he ended up becoming the owner of that bass and to this is still digging it.
