    Count me in! Just placed an order yesterday. Now the wait begins.
     
  6. I'm in too, mine's gonna be a MJ4, and it's gonna have a special inlay and no dots on the fretboard!

    After spending some quality time with this bass I can only say Jon's work is absolutely awesome. For a totally handcrafted instrument it's unbelievable. Fit and finish is incredible and the set up is to die for.

    Guys if you're in the market for an alternative to the mainstream brands do check him out. You will not be disappointed.

    Check out his Facebox page >>
    Seems the Single Cut shape is called a "Brooklyn Elite".
    I'm not sure he's doing full on custom yet, but these basses are looking lovely, as are his more Jazz styled ones.
    That 33" scale option is creeping up everywhere these days :)
