    It's a beautiful bass but we need a bit more to make a decision:

    *Scale
    *Nut Spacing
    *Preamp/Electronics/Hardware
    *Woods
    *Case/Shipping CONUS
    *Pretty much everything

    Wild tailpiece and bridge. Really enjoyed seeing that.

    Bring it to a Kai Eckhardt gig and let him check it out. Looks like something he might like.
