    Hi folks,
    I was online browsing and came across a luthier who had some singlecutbasses listed for sale they looked interesting but the woods where not what I was looking for so I emailed him and requested a custom build with Birdseye maple but thought that might not work but surprisingly he said he can make it and sent me a picture of one he was making for a German guy that had ordered one so after about a week of talking I decided to go ahead and order one..The guy literally sent me pictures of the build everyday just to show me updates, I finally received the bass about a week ago and boy am I impressed....The price was good for what I got it for, I'm willing to replace the preamp and pickups with some highend ones and I also have a highmass omega bass bridge that I've already installed on there, even though it came with Warwick 2 band preamp I have a different tone in mind....below are some pics and sound test when I got it....

    That's a beauty!! I really love the design of the neck / body transition, looks great with contrasting woods! Also an excellent selection of woods - the figuring on the fretboard is gorgeous!
    It sounds like she makes some pretty cool sounds too! Ha! (Sometimes these basses look so good it's crazy they sound good as well!)
    Congratulations!!
    Hope she gives you many years of happiness!
     
  4. The wood looks great. How's the hardware and pickups? A lot of factories have difficulty sourcing those parts.
