    Dan makes the sweetest relics I think I`ve ever seen. They look like real vintage instruments, as opposed to new-basses - made-to-look-like-old-basses. Congrats !

    I agree, I just got a Warmoth body finished and reliced by Dan Atkinson, and the finish looks sweet. Really thin finish too, I have already "reliced" it a little bit more myself !

    Holy crap, that is *exactly* what I would order except maybe the pups. I didn't know that you could get a 1-5/8" nut. Me want. Interested to see how this comes out.

    Nice! How long is the wait?
     
  13. It depends on what you order. My bass was officially ordered on August 12. Dan was sick for a couple weeks, so that delayed my bass a bit, but it should be done in a week or so. If you order a bass in nitro, expect it to be 5-6 weeks.

    My wait is 6 weeks. Good work takes time, and 6 weeks isn't even bad.

    My Sonic Blue Atkinson P/J, which I won on eBay, came in today. If the sunburst model I have on order is anything like this one I'm in for a serious treat. Dan's work is absolutely TOP NOTCH.

  15. Lublin, would you mind terribly giving us a short review of your new acquisition, with maybe some more pics? I can't get enough of this stuff, and with my bass coming soon I'm anxious to read more reviews!

    I'd be more than happy to do that as soon as I get home.

    In short and for now: Played the bass at rehearsal last night and it was friggin' amazing - no B.S. You're going to be a very happy man.

    Nice score..great price! Congrads on the new bass being built she sounds great. I need to sell something so I can order a bass from Dan...gas fo' sure.
     
  18. Shoot me a PM if you wanna sell this one when the other one arrives. :hyper:
     
  19. Got an email from Dan, mine will be shipping next week. Mine being a lefty, he opted for a USACG neck instead of the allparts, which is fine by me.
