    Anybody familiar with his basses...
    I have a 4 string made by him in 96.
    Since his electronics where a disaster - I had Sadowsky do the electronics...Standard J set up with Sadowsky Pre.
    Its a very nice bass..not machined but truly hand finished and has a slightly raw look / feel to it.
    Rosewood board with a slightly clubby tele bass type neck.
    24 fret Neck through body -
    Woods used ..Maple / rosewood / purple heart.
    It was quite an experience working with him through the process.. he has built guitars and basses for Pat Martino, Kevin Eubanks and Rob Hurst.
    He lives in Huntington Long Island......
