    nice.

    being strictly a player, i find it so interesting to get a glimpse of the other side of basses - luthiers.

    Cool indeed!
    I heard he was planning on coming out with a "how-to" DVD but I wasn't sure if that was actually going to happen.
    I mean, if he takes 2+ year to make one bass, how long would a DVD project take?;)

    Thanks for that link, very cool.
    And even cooler in case anybody's looking for a 6 string fretless, look at the for sale link. Nice looking bass for sure. I'm sure it's not being given away but at least you wouldn't have to wait the 2 years it took to build it. :)
    And happy B-day Carl!

    He just seems like such a humble, down-to-earth kind of dood who's been doing this FOREVER and met so many fantastic people along the way.
