    Hello!

    Just thought its about time that we make a Bee Bass owners club!

    Fred Bolton is a great guy, he is a phenomenal luthier, his basses are jaw dropping!

    Originally, some of us were planning to make a Stinger owners club, but I think we should put all his basses under one banner :)

    To be a member, you have to follow these criterias

    1. You own or having a Bee on your way to you
    or
    2. You are considering a Bee Bass

    Here's mine Bee!

    Bee basses are amazing, I have a Worker 5, well until tomorrow. I just traded it to another TBer, not much of a 5 player these days. Jonki, the new bass looks great, did you get the Acrylicized fretboard?

    I work for Nordstrand Pickups.
    I don't want a number, but I do have a Worker coming soon. I'm quite excited for a 28-fret bass since joining a wholly improvisation band as their second bassist, which already requires more solos than I assumed I could handle. Anyhow, I'll ask this question here even if I already did in the other thread:

    Any questions/concerns/comments/suggestions for using a hardshell case with Bee basses? Not gig bags or flight cases, just a nice hard case like a G&G. Any fitment issues I should be aware of? Cheers.

    I got a Gator softcase though, handles and absorbs alot of kinetic energy, however, I can try and see if it fits my Stinger, if it helps. :)

    It's a Vine that grows in Mexico (I think) that has one of the coolest grains I've ever seen! It's too small to be used for tops and such, it's mainly used in knife and gun handles... I had to find a way to get some on a bass :)

    Thanks for that: definitely a wild looking wood; good choice!
     
  17. So... anyone got any news on their custom builds yet? :D
     
  18. Hey whats up Athe,

    No news here what so ever.... Ive emailed Fred like 649237487541288745 times over the last few months and NOTHING. I cant get a hold of Fred....

    I know he's swamped with at least 8 basses at the momment, I'm sure theres a hell of allot more that i dont know about,...

    The wait is tourturous:(
     
  19. Hey Cheeto how you doin!
    I really feel your pain man, 3 year wait must be awful!
    I'm also waiting for a reply from Fred...one can only wait and hope, but its frusturating for sure.

    I'm sure the end result will be worth it all though :hyper:

    I was considering buying a 5 string stinger for the last few months but it's not the first time i read about Bee basses not returning emails and not answering the phone, i'm about to order an MTD instead... I'll wait and see if it get better in the future...
