    I'll get pics up maybe tomorrow.. Okay?..
    I know bout' Morch selling instruments to JoeyG Music? Right.. I think its the only place in US that has Morch basses.. Maybe im wrong..
    But im only about 1.5hour away from him in car.. So it super close.. We are quite good friends, and besides im a super customer. When I picked up the bass today we had lunch, and he talked alot about his deal with JoeyG music NYC.. Btw those singlecuts are super nice..!

    wow, 36"? that's pretty long. I don't imagine you'll be doing any chording near the headstock ;)

    it sure is purdy though!

    NanooKano: Hi Sylvain, you have not been to any trouble!.. :D
    Regarding Morch basses and his whereabouts, not many people know about him in Europe and US. Maybe thats because he has not promoted himself in anyway overseas and here.. In DK he's one of the most respected luthiers, but as i have said in other posts, he's only ONE man in the workshop, and he production is very limited. check out he's his site www.morch-guitars.dk (It's my bass on the frontside :hyper: )

    Do you like Morch's stuf?.. Im quite interested in knowing what you guys think of his "scandinavian" design.. So what do you think?..
  14. thats one fantastic looking bass, glad it plays well, and man a 36" scale, those strings have got to be so nice and tight to play with!

    It's funny that the bass looks HUGE and hard to play, but the neck is FAST super slim.. fits my hand as a glove.. But still I have to get used to the 36" scale..

    Fine looking bass.

    Reminds me a lot like a Carl thompson...which rules
  18. When it comes to looks, I find Mørch's basses to be "nydelige".* ;) Sadly, I've never played one, nor have I, as far as I know, heard one. Feel like posting some soundclips?

    *If that word is appropriate in this particular context...

    ive spoken to jonny a few times from here in los angeles - he's a very very nice guy -- this would be his well known and award winning "curl" bass! i believe that david king spent time in europe with jonny and credits his impeccable work and p/ups ... nice bass! ... do enjoy!!

    I think DK used to offer Morch electronics in his basses, although it's missing from the site now.
