    let me start by introducing you to Brad Lowe
    www.lowecustomguitars.com

    after talking to Brad , i ordered his prototype bass , the Chromasonic .

    after my first gig with this bass , i realised that my much loved G&L's and Fender Precison basses
    would have to take a back seat to this newcomer ...

    here is a shot from Brad's website ...

    :cool:
    the weight is a little more than my P-basses , but the bass is well balanced , with little or no neck dive ...

    Lollar ThunderBird pickups provide incredible
    punch and warmth , big and fat without being muddy .
    the AllParts neck has a very comfortable ,
    familiar feel .

    the body shape and headstock design , love 'em or hate 'em , are stand out features that
    separate this bass from anything else i own or have ever played ...
    :cool:

    here's a few recent gig shots ...

    I just HAVE to get a Lowe bass. I'm fighting and losing my battle with gas.

    I want a slap body P with a custom paint job.

    (Nickels and dimes being set aside as I type...)

    I love the pickup configuration and the original styling. You don't see that much nowadays.

    ok , so i've had this badboy for a couple months now , and played 18 or 19 gigs with it .

    rave reviews from bandmembers , and had great reviews from bassplayer friends in the audience .

    this is a very comfortable , easy playing , well balanced bass , and the tone is absolutely killer .

    i'm totally diggin' this bass , and i've never had anything else sound as good .

    anyway , here are some shots from our New Years Eve gig ...:D
