    That's really beautiful- great choice of color tones, and that fingerboard really does it.

    He has stepped up his game of late. He's planning to build full fledged high end basses with nice tops as well as still building solid bread & butter affordable instruments. He can build you whatever you want. Any body style, any electronics/hardware. He's also partnered with a local electronics guru and will be building pickups and preamps.

    And another. Specs: Jag style neck...2.5" heel. 1.5" nut with very thin, A-symm (slightly) neck profile. Both this one and the Kintage 4235 XTS I finished have compound radius fingerboards 9.5-12. This one has all EMG stuff...MM-TW (switchable coil) pickup in the bridge position...and a J style pup in the uber bridge position

    This one is actually mine. He built a new neck for it. Just finished it today.
