    No offense to George, Vinnie and Carey, but the aesthetic appearance of this brand of basses seem to be a blend of F Bass, Fodera, and Nordstrand.

    I guess there only so many ways to shape a bass's body and you'll eventually end up with an overlap in designs.

    Good looking basses! Thanks for keeping us informed.
