    No, It was built for a dealer in Japan.

    I don't think Angelfire will let you put in a direct link to the picture, unfortunately.

    That's a pretty sweet looking bass. Though, and I like the buckeye tops in general, when I saw it the phrase "hairy chest" popped into my head.

    That is so nice I am scared ! I play 6 str. never touched a 7 though i saw a Conklin at a shop the other day - looked like it would take me a year to get used to playing it . Hell, it took me a year to get used to playing 6 (after 18 years of fretless 4 !)

    Ver y cool. What does a beast like that go for ?:)

    Yikes! That looks pretty nice, but I'd like it alot more if it had a full top.
     
  9. I dig it, although I think the top is less "hairy chest" and more "DESPERATELY NEEDING BIKINI WAX."
     
  10. That's beautiful... maybe one day ;)
     
  11. That is one of the sweetest basses I've ever seen! My only criticism is that I would prefer the neck laminates to be thicker.

    Xush, Thanks do much for posting the pics!!!!!


    fivestringdan, I think its about 4-5 months. Those are Aero dual coils with mahogany body, maple 1/4 sawn neck with ebony pinstripes.

    Does anyone else think the visible part of the neck-through looks really plain-jane next to the figured top? Aside from that, the single cutaway pattern has always appealed to me.
     
  16. what's the point of those pickup covers if they're going to be on top of that plain neck-thru strip?

    I agree, I think using the neck woods would have blended better. But the customer ordered it the way he wanted it.

    Here's the matching 5 string he ordered as well. This one is actually with bassplayer mag for review right now.

    The wood covers blend a little better then two big black EMG or Bartolini's though!!!!!

    Who would you need a 7 and a 5 of the same thing? Wouldn't the 7 have the same as the 5,. with just 2 more strings on top?

    Unless one is fretted and the other is fretless, it just seens to be a waste...

    :confused:

    Note that they were built for a *dealer*.
