I just purchased a Curbow Petite 5 string FL. It was sitting in a Tokyo bass shop and I simply couldn't resist on taking it back home. It's beautiful, great playability, awesome sound. Chances do emerge out of nowhere. I never knew about Greg Curbow's basses up to this point though. I've discovered that some of you on this forum own and adore the Curbows, and I hope some of you can fill me out with your rare knowledge of this rare instrument. What I need to know in particular is about the controls. It has two Bartolini soap bars and I believe it is a pretty standard version. Here are some photo's of the bass I got, from the shop's website. (I believe the photos are going to stay there for a while even though it's now sold out!) Thanks!
