    I like the other single cut he has in stock....nice basses. I'd like to see a more "complete" website though.

    I've dug his basses for a long while, and I finally got to play my first last year. It was a great bass, but I wasn't sure it was worth the $2800 price tag at the time considerring there's such little overall info about his basses. If you had to sell one, you'd take a big hit because there just isn't enough people that know about his product.

    Man, I've gotta say, nothings more rediculous than not being able to find a website on the net. I couldn't find Ray's site at all. I googled everything I could think of. What's his site address?
     
  7. Thats a pretty wicked bass.

    The top is purpleheart yes?

    Man, I really thought I'd tried that.:rollno:

    Thanks.
     
  10. That's a beauty! There is a very similar Fodera Purpleheart bass somewhere. I think it's on the Bass Northwest 'Already Sold Gallery Page'. While the look is a little over the top for me personally, it sure is nice.

    "very simliar" ---- IMO, those basses got more significant visually differences... than Sadowsky and or Lull and or Fender.
     
  13. +1 I was just talking about the unusual Purpleheart thing... you don't see Purpleheart tops that ofter, much less blocks, dots, etc.

    That's not my favorite R Bass, but I dig Ray's work.
