    Hey all...long time no browse. Just got off yet another cruise ship contract up here in Seattle. Was a good gig...will be going to another one in Holland next month.

    Check out this frettless 5 being built for me by Ohio luthier Trey Combs (mine's the one in the middle...zebrawood wings with wenge and purpleheart streamers, macassar ebony FB). The soapbar EMG's are yet to be routed for in this current photo. To the left is going to be a fretless 4, and to the right is a half fretted/fretless semi-hollow geetar.

    Hope all are doing well...have 3 weeks off and look forward to surfing TB!

    Dude, nice looking bass! I like your body style a LOT, and I REALLY dig the woods together.

    What kinda hardware's going on that baby??

    Anyway, welcome back and congrats on the new bass.

  3. Very nice! I especially like the wooden bridge piece on the guitar.

    Reminds me of a Bebensee.

    What are the specs?

    Nice lookin hunka wood ya got there.

    That's the first Zebrawood bass I've liked! I like the body shape, it's really organic, even though it's pointy. I like it.

    It is just the angle, or is that headstock a bit on the small side?

    Cool beans, man!
