Hey all. Just putting out more info on DP custom basses. you can read all about the pros and cons on this site, with the more recent being the most fair. I got my first one in 2011 and couldn't be happier. definitely some minor finish flaws, such as the sides of the nut, but overall excellent quality. I bought a five because my gig at the time required it, although I prefer a 4-string. since then, that gig has disappeared. I have gone through an american deluxe jazz and an ernie ball big al and sold them both, because the playability, but more importantly the TONE just doesn't compare to the DP. I finally got fed up, sold my aggie gs410 and some other gear and put my 2nd order in. I have a 4-string "LP" style single-cut build coming with nordstrand's throughout, 2 piece hipshot, maple maple maple...the works. picking out top piece now and should be gettings some drawings/layout work soon to help combate neck dive. The fact that this build will cost less than an american fender is more than enough reason to go with Dave again. He's not the fastest builder, but he listens and gives constructive feedback when warranted. If you have any questions, please contact me. I'll try to update on the build as it goes along. some pics of the first dp custom. the knob's were outsourced, and used the same burled maple as the top.
