    Hi!

    I won't go into the full story, but after a number of fruitless attempts to have companies like Richwood, Farida etc. take some great (imho lol) design ideas for a short scale bass on board I took the plunge and had it built myself by the legendary UK luthier Brian Eastwood.

    I'm completely delighted with how it's turned out and the more unusual concepts work really well too :)

    Also, are you using stainless or nickel Roto strings?

    THAT is one BEAUTIFUL bass! It must be because I never use that many caps.
