    You just don't see these very often. S'probably gonna be worth a lot in a bit, too, as Carl Thompson is gonna retire at the end of the year. He makes some reallllll crazy stuff...

    And no, I'm not the dude selling it. If I had one, I'd never let it go! But as I don'have the cash, I though I'd post it somewhere where It'd likely go to a good home.

    it was posted here by the owner already... D. Huff http://dhuffguitars.com/

    personally I'd rather have one of Darrin's basses then the one he's selling.

    I did? I don't think that I did........

    Thanks for the kind words James!

    Yeah as much as it is nice owning a Carl I really need the money for the new shop I am building more than the bass.

    That's an awesome-looking Thompson. There are very few Thompsons that I find even remotely attractive, but that one's the cat's pajamas. Good luck setting up your new shop, Darrin.

    I did a search before I posted it. I didn't come up with anything.

    But yeah, it is a really hot bass. I hope someone worthy gets it, and actually plays it! I hate to see stuff like that just hangin'on a wall.
