Reminds me of a Fodera Emperor.
I was at Jon's today and his stuff is unbelievable. There are some very nice basses being constructed and I got a sneak peak of what's coming..Wait until you see the pics.
Count me in! Just placed an order yesterday. Now the wait begins.
I'm in too, mine's gonna be a MJ4, and it's gonna have a special inlay and no dots on the fretboard!
Very nice guys. They are great instruments and Jon is a great person to work with.
we need more pics on this thread !

couple better shots of my Mbass
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.
This thread is a little slow, so I'll get something started...

Is Jon making custom basses again?
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
