    Welcome to the CallowHill club... part 3! This is a carry over from the original club threadS that can be found here and 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!

    Just talked to Tim. Glad he is making changes that are positive for him, even if it means closing up shop. :bawl: He's a good guy.

    He really is a good dude. I hate that he is closing up shop and hope that after a break and maybe some re-working or whatever that he can open back up. Sucks to see the BS getting to a talented guy. Nobody should have to deal with a bunch of crap in their day-to-day job.

    I'm with Majestic that maybe he can streamline some options and slowly add some help. His stuff is just too good to not be out there and would be a huge loss for the bass community.

    I'm glad I got my p-bass order in when I did. I hope I didn't add to the stress with the woodburn request. Stand-up guy and I wish the best to him... and I'm really looking forward to my p4-22. It should be very cool.

    Fellers, here are the numbers. If Tim really closes his business, you might want to hang onto those CallowHills. I would imagine with them being so scarce, they would be almost impossible to replace.

    I planned on holding onto mine anyway, but I get ya. I'm guessing that it's going to be really tough to find used callowhills on the market.

    ^^ Me too.

    It's a REAL shame that it came to this. I was actually saving for an MDM or possibly an OBS which I had discussed with Tim earlier in the year. Great, down to earth guy to communicate with. It's a shame about the customers that are obviously on his back 24/7.

    I hate to bring it up, but it kind of makes me think of the Minnieweather tragedy. The guy was obviously going through some tough stuff, and the people with orders just could not get off his back, ultimately leading to a real tragic circumstance.

    Some dudes just really need to learn to cool it. Be sure about what you want and be patient, good things take time!

    wow, that's full on news.
    guttered. I was nearly ready to order another one.

    However, I will not be treating mine with kid gloves now, this is a serious gig machine, and is still my number one, I'm having a hard time bringing anything else back into the rotation.

    Love ya Tim!!

    Mine should have shipped out to Tim yesterday to complete the build process. Then it will be in my hands to make beautiful music.
