    come on JP, ain't ya cracked the code yet?!

    Bass Summit #4.

    Mark (progzilla) was at my last one w/ his Zon Hyperbass and whatnot. He's another cool dude from Alabammy.

    Between his DP, Conklin and my FBB, we're trying to schedule the summit for when all the basses are done.

    Who knows, maybe I'll have a little surprise for BSIV!

    Can you give us detailled specs of the bass Progzilla??

    Maybe you already give those on another thread but it would be good to have them here along the pics...


    Peace, JP

    Nice...

    Everybody should share the specs of his coming basses...;)

    Thanks Prog!

  16. Very nice Prog, I have been loving the conklins lately!!

    Is that a piece of buckeye burl in the back there? looks tasty.
     
  17. I don't generally care much for spalted tops, but that is sweet.




    *mumbling something about needing a new bass soon*
