    Just waiting on the final payment invoice, hoping it plays and sounds as nice as it looks! Thanks, Dave!

    That's different. Is there something on the pick guard or are those knobs underneath it?

    Knobs underneath for balancing the magnetic and piezo signals (I think, maybe tone too?).

    I've had an eye on them for a long long time, interested to see how the "acoustic archtop solidbody electric hybrid" thing works out.

    Not hardly big enough, lol - the arch is there for acoustic reasons. :smug:

    Dave makes great stuff, and the most "acoustic" sounding electric bass out there, IMO. Dave built several great necks and basses for me over the years when I was in Branson, including his first ever 5 string. I was always very happy and impressed with Dave's work.

    Funny thing - for entirely unrelated reasons, I was search back through old GAS pic files I had saved circa 2006 and came across this gem - the inspiration for what I am about to receive!

    redfiveloz.

    Hehe - I remember saying - make mine like that except with ebony and a dark tobacco burst! :)

    I really like that body shape. It's elegant. Some similarities (at least to my eyes) to NS and Wal, but definitely its own thing.

    Congrats on NBD! Santa's making an early stop!

    It's here! Even prettier in person! Plays and sounds very nice, here's a quick sample:

     
  17. What the heck? You did it backwards.

    You know the rules, Pictures First.
    Usually if it is asked for a recording it takes weeks or never happens.
    But not you. Audio then maybe pictures. :laugh:

    Yes I know there are pictures on the first post but they are not yours, you need the I got it in my possession pics.

    Ah... you got a neat thing, do whatever.

    Either way I like it. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Just read an email from Dave, I misunderstood the controls, had them both maxed, but it's volume / balance, not volume / volume. Will try another clip at a more representative setting.
