Hey all. I just found this on ebay so I figuered I'd give a head's up on this great bass. I've played this one in my buddy's shop and it's one of my favorite basses that Brian Ristola has built. It has a great big warm sound from the single pickup as well as one of my favorite preamps, a Demeter 3 band. If you don't know about Brian's work than check out www.ristolainstruments.com. I love this bass but it has 2 less strings than I prefer. I have nothing to gain from this, I just really like Brian Ristola's basses and am always trying to hip others to his work. Check it out.
