    This is a fine, fine bass. Ristola's are works of art.

    Robert, thanks for the slap bass lesson! The Ristola sounded great with you playing it! Nice to meet you again.

    Brian does very nice work. I've had a couple of his basses and loved them. I have a 5 string exotic fretless that I really do like a lot.
