    I tried to capture all of the little things that make this bass so beautiful, but please let me know if you want a pic of something else. Thanks.

    Those are not nicks only spots of dust on the headstock. Also I know the screw is out of the truss rod cap, I had just finished making sure it functions properly.

    Very nice. Could your provide some information of the builder? It's very Carl Thompson like.
  4. An I believe the body's core wood is mahogany. Looks like it from here. But don't quote me. Nice friggin bass. Free bump. glwts...

    Browne basses are not only beautiful and gorgeous, they play and sound terrific.
    If this bass was 2 inch shorter it would be now gone....

    I have a Browne 4 strings 34" scale, if this one was at least 35" I will be mine ! 36" for a 5 string is too much fingerboard to me !

    He used to apprentice for Carl back in the day. His basses are very similar to CT feel wise. He learned alot from carl, but as the story goes, he branched out to start his own company, and prematurely priced himself out of business. To expensive to soon. I wouldnt pass up a chance to own one! If you have the scratch, do it! Great players, great action, super unique design, and superb basses!

    There are details that are Very CTish. The Right arm cut away is unique, I've not seen a nice wood only cut away like this bass before. Painted, solid stuff, yes, but not like this.
    the electronics are well chosen to boot.

    What is the string spacing?

    I want to say 19mm, but I will check and get back to you.

    **edit. It's 18mm**
