    I've been drooling over that red one since I first got sent a picture (I was on the phone with Chris as it was finished). It's hurtin' bad that no one has pulled the trigger on it. I was just on AIM with Hippiesandwich and he said...

    "that CAR Vintage Vortex 6 is the shnitz! the tone was OUTSTANDING. I kept smacking the open E and just letting in ring :) That bass SMOKES!"

    it's only money right :meh: I'm off to a second interview tomorrow at a job closer to where I was money wise before the "dot com" crash... maybe I'll be better off in time to buy it.

    or I could just order one like it ;) after my fretless 6 string 51.

    Wasn't there a Vortex 5 string also in Candy Apple Red, but with Block inlays? That one made me messy myself! ... As did the quilt Maple Topped SC5. Those Vintage Vortexs are looking mighty tempting!
