    Rolling Bender
    Pro: Light, easy to install. Can be installed on most Strat and Tele style bridge. They offer individual saddles and traditional Tele saddles.
    Con: Picking hand needs to move to use it and it's a little harder to do gradual bends. The latter might improve with technique over time. I wish they offered angled levers or something that would allow 2 Rolling Benders independently.

    Hipshot B Bender
    Pro: Just tug on the strap and no need to move either hand. Very good for gradual bends.
    Con: Requires extensive surgery. F#$%^% heavy. Limited to the Tele shape.

    I did a gig Friday night and selected my Master Classic with the Audere pre and Bart pups. It really sounded good through the Genzler rig!
    Chris combined the right woods and electronics for this awesome bass!

    Okay, I just received this like-new used Stambaugh Master Modern (right) to complement my Master Classic (left)! It was a sweet steal of a deal that I couldn't let pass and just a jewel in a room full of diamonds!
    It has the Pope Flexcore pre with Aero dual coil pups, body matching ramp and knobs!

    I’m doing a gig this Friday and trying to decide which pair of basses I should take; Stambaugh, Roscoe or CP Thornton(?).

    I think you'll get a biased answer here . . .

    No doubt, but such a quiet thread for a great bass builder!

    These are good words.

    But we demand pictures.


    Your sixer is one I've been waiting to see completed. I'm also super interested to hear what you think of the Zen Blades and the Richlite fingerboard.

    Then just to add some media to this thread, here's a clip of my fretless Stambaugh from last year after I first got it.

    Here are the two (of the five that Chris crafted for me) that have stood the test of time. The 8 is my go-to.

    I don't know if I've posted this photo in this thread. I've had a ton of basses over the years, including a fair number of Stambaughs, but this has been my stable for well over a year now and I don't really see any changes coming. Four Stammies and two EBMM guitars.

  16. That's a jaw-dropping collection, Jared! I am, of course, partial to the fretless...
