I'll be at Namm this Saturday representing Benavente and Madison Speakers. If any of you will be there ,feel free to stop by and check it out. I've always wanted a quilted maple bass but for years I was told that I couldn't have one because they couldn't find the wood. This is just what I wanted. This bass is only 8 pounds which is perfect for my neck and back injury. My first custom 9 string was 17 lbs.!!!! I could barley walk after the gig. I'll give a review on it after the Summer Namm. I'll also be doing a bass clinic in Tokyo, for Benavente basses while I'm playing at the Blue Note jazz club. It looks great!!!! Thank you Cris and Brian!!!!!
