    I'm going off memory for the specs but here we go:

    -Bubinga body
    -Rosewood fingerboard
    -5 piece wenge neck
    -Bloodwood ramp and pot cover
    -Bubinga bridge (string length on the G is 34", 35" at the B)
    -Black custom hardware
    -Nordstrand Big Single pickups
    -Passive volume/pickup pots
    -All 5 strings are thru-body
    -Nut width 45mm
    -String spacing at bridge 19mm
    -Thru neck

    Big sustain, the neck is thin but a bit wide for what I'm trying to do. It sounds amazing with rounds but I haven't had them on since I bought the bass in 2009. A couple years later I brought the bass back to its maker, Andrew, who put a bloodwood ramp on (from the same block as the bloodwood control cover) and sanded down the fingerboard damage from round wounds, took the bridge down appropriately, and put on the strings that currently live on it, extra-long scale TI flats (it's currently strung E-C but I have the TI flat B as well). Check the thumbnails for more pictures!

    Beautiful bass. I'm assuming it does not have any Piezo?

    What's the deal with that wack string arrangement at the headstock? Two strings are switched at the pegs on the treble side.

    Bass looks beautiful in any case.
  5. Look at the closeup of the headstock. They're not swapped; they're just right on top of each other. It does appear to be a poor design decision.

    How do you intonate the bass with the bridge design.
