Just put money down on this at BHB: 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!!!
