Does anyone in the SF Bay Area have a laminated New Standard Cleveland I could check out?
Sorry I only have a carved one but you're welcome to check it out.
Still even if it's a lammy... BUY IT!
Now.... you're NOT sorry for having that beautiful Cleveland Carved. I saw the thread. Of course, the OP might be sorry if he tries it out and can't afford to get one. Wonder how the plys stack up in terms of sound?
If you want to drive down to Santa Cruz, mine will be gigging Friday and Saturday of this week... send me a PM.
Man, you a one cold hearted M*********r!!!
OK sheesh, sorry I said anything.
Nothing but props man, I was kidding. You've got a beautiful bass and I'm envious. I hope to hear you play that bass one day soon.
Many thanks, but I think a carved version would be too far out of my price range to consider.
By the way, it looks like we're both Glenn disciples. We should have t-shirts!
JAKE - I'd still fall by and check it out. The workmanship and "feel" of the instrument are going to be similar. I played a ply Cleveland at Gage's and then DONOSAUR's hybrid Cleveland and, yes, there were some differences in sound. But, at this "age", not very profound ones. And the workmanship, the way the bass felt under the hand, pretty much all of the physical aspects carried over form ply to hybrid. and I will postulate that this will be so for the fully carved as well.
I recommend taking HUFF DADDY up on his offer.
That's a strong recommendation. Much appreciated!
Winston Berger in Oakland and Jeff Kissel in Santa Cruz were both kind enough to let me try their plywood Clevelands a couple of years ago when I was looking.
