    This is maybe one of the best looking basses I have ever seen (does this sound like a former president talking). If only they could make a "massive" bridge out of wood as well.

    Adrian, Thanks...you are right about the Marcus slap tone from the Vortex! Love to see your orders soon! I don't think you'll keep them in your stable too long!! Get your orders in talkbassers!!
