    My favorite: LeFay Pangton! Although I think the entire body is wenge, not just the top!

    That must weigh a ton. One piece body of solid Wenge?? How does it not warp?

    :hyper: My baby, Le Fay Capone (ash body w/wenge top). :hyper:

    Very comfortable and well-balanced. Although I haven't weighed it, it's not unusually heavy at all and seems to weigh about as much as the others in the stable.


    Reiner builds a mean bass!

    For wenge lovers, this one is Wenge top and back, with wenge neck and fingerboard.
    Only piezzo PU, it sounds great, very bright. Perfect for tenor tuning.

    Wow! What are the specs on that bass? IS the core Limba or Walnut? That bass would look cool with the Whit Wenge board.
