    Well, I got it back. I originally traded it to JSonnenblick for his Atelier Z 5 & I just traded him my Warmoth Koa Jazz for it.

    I just took some new pics of it:

    Nino, does Warmoth make a Gecko 4 stringer? Sorry in advance if this is a stupid question.

    :D Sure would like to have one with a natural quilt top!

    No, they don't make a 4 string. I think I remember a thread whew Brian ( TB member that works at Warmoth) stated they might try, or they had a prototype of a 4 but it was a while ago.

    a Natural quilt with a rosewood board & maple gecko would look really nice!!!!

    Thanks for the info! I hope they decide to make a four. BTW, that blue is a beautiful instrument. You must have missed her since you traded to get her back. How does she play??

    Man that thing is pretty.

    Did you do the finish on it, ot did you buy it finished?

    How does it compare to all your Sadowskys?

  9. Same questions, plus - how much does it weigh? Is it Alder or Ash Body?

    Very Nice. I love the color. Geckos are very underated basses. My local luthier had one a while back and i was one of the best sounding basses I've ever heard.
