    Welcome to the CallowHill club... part 2! This is a carry over from the original club thread that can be found here. I hope your time here will be pleasant. All of you guys out there that own or play a CallowHill Bass are invited to join this club. This club is rather exclusive(small), but there is defintely room for others. There are only two requirements:

    #1 You must own a CallowHill or be in the process of having a CallowHill built.
    #2 You must post a pic of said bass or at least the progress pic of it.

    This thread also will house tons of pics and videos of CallowHill Basses. So here is a warning for those not in the club: Be Careful! The pictures that will start showing up in this thread will cause severe GAS!


    This is a carry over of a really old thread that can be found here. Plenty of good stuff there also.

    So that being said here we go!

    I will try post the club numbers along with a few pictures. Everyone is invited to repost any pics they may have or wish to see!

    Alright, Part II!!

    I don't have any new pics to post (notice old progress shot as avatar). I'm looking forward to seeing all the new basses that should be getting posted here in the next couple of months.

    To all CallowHill members:
    If you have any production pics or completion pics of your bass, new or old, repost them. Also, along with any pics of basses that might have inspired yours, go ahead and post them up along with your specs for all the new comers. That will get this new thread up and running in the right direction.

    Tim said the ebony top for my Infini 5 will be here Tuesday. He also said that the fretboard had been slotted so hopefully I'll have some starting progress pics here in the next month or 2.

    Hey everyone,

    I haven't checked in for a while so I thought I'd post my pic Tim just sent me. Just to refresh, here are my specs:

    MDM 5
    Light Ash body
    Maple Neck
    Nordstrand Fat Stacks in Sadowsky Modern 24 spacing
    Aguilar OBP1
    18" string spacing

    Sort of basic I suppose, but VERY useful and designed to be exactly what I'm looking for in tone. The design is based on my Ash/Maple Sadowsky M524 (big shock) but with a string spacing I'm more comfortable with.

    I'm doing a burst just like this bass which inspired the finish:

    Tim is matching the headstock like the BN5 in the pic. It should look pretty understated but still very cool.
