    Very nice. Though, in my book, wenge and lightweight are two different things...
  3. What a beauty, congrats, it's a very cool bass!

    Almost positive this is Wilbyman's old bass.

    That one is much like my old Acacia - only different top wood and bridge. It'll be a great instrument! Congratulations! (btw: mine is up for grabs at The Low End.)

    Currenty yes. I did sell a six string a couple of years ago. The 34 inch scale and laquer finish didn't do it for me, not a big fan of EMG's either. I don't have a family picture yet but here they all are in one form or another.

  10. DZ, every time this thread gets bumped, I get a little more depressed

    I'd sell my soul for that fretless

    Which I guess is a compliment, or a congradulations, in a way

    but its really just jealousy :rolleyes:
