    Ash and Maple... Black binding. Black block inlays... Everything I've wanted in a jazz bass aesthetically and tonally! It was pointed out (very graciously I might add) by Brian Barret at www.thelowend.net who'd rather see me get EXACTLY what I want rather than make a dollar himself... Now THAT is integrity!!! I will definitely keep an eye on his site for that fretless I've been meaning to buy the last two years!!! :D

    :hyper: :bassist:

    Hey Joe,
    I thought I recognized those photos! :D If you're as blown away by the looks of this bass as I was, you will be even more impressed once you finally get 'er in your hands. Tone, tone, TONE! ;) :bassist:
