    Since there's been a few of these lately, thought I'd throw mine out as well. Didn't really realise I had 10 basses (plus my King Double Bass) til I laid them all out.

    Yessir, I dig the maple boards so it's pretty weird that my basses skew the other way. Ended up that way on accident, really...

    I like 'em lots. Search here for lots of comments and info..
     
  11. Doh! How do you like the King? I don't know anybody who uses one.
     
  12. They're great basses...nice and light, resonant, great neck, killer tone. It's a shame Joe stopped making them.

    My King is *not* one of the "new" Kings. It's a circa 1950 HN White built King that qwas restored by Bob Branstetter (search for him in the DB forums) in Kansas City. It has a carved spruce top, pakkawood fingerboard that's been shimmed up some for sweeet low action, custom adjustable maple bridge, new endpin, etc. It's reaaal nice.

    I had one of the new Kings, and I wouldn't take one of those junkpiles for free. You can search the setup forum in the db section for threads started by chef to see why.
