    ....not that it's a bad thing! :D
    I'm getting a Smith BSR J 4 string from Wilbyman in a trade deal...I've been begging him for a year to let me have it! It has:
    walnut center block
    avidore wings
    bubinga board
    Nordstrand SEs jazz pickups installed
    standard Smith appointments....3 band HazLab Smith pre, 3 piece maple neck, Smith case, polish and strap.

    I might paint it hot pink...maybe Mary Kay pink...I dunno.... :D

    Will (Wilbyman) is a GREAT guy to deal with, and is as honest as they come (for a lawyer... ;) ). A really nice guy who has great taste in basses! (Actually, I think we were seperated at birth....we have IDENTICAL taste in basses and both dig the exact same things about certain basses.....he even has a bass that I've had; his trusty R bass 33" scale).

    Will, if you see this, and can post a pic or 2, please do!!

    ...lookin' forward to Friday...hubba hubba!

    Here are some funny pictures I found of this bass.

    Right after we had the baby, my wife started using this sling called the Baby Bjorn. She would just strap the baby to her stomach and do laundry, whatever. I thought there might be another use for this thing...



    Anyway, yeah, Matt and I have eerily similar tastes! Fortunately he's great to deal with AND custom orders killer stuff, saving me the agonizing lead times! This Smith is a special bass, glad somebody else will get to enjoy it.

    edit: paint it and I might send Luca Brazi to eat your eyeballs!

    hopefully, all those "basscentric vibrations" will help your baby grow to become the phenom in the footsteps of his pops. :bassist: :D

    That's child abuse! Subjecting your kid to your bass playing while squashing the kid with the bass...shame on you!

    That's too cute Wilby! I should have done that when my baby was little. It would have been a cute picture.

    This kid is going to play the vibes. She LOVES Stefon Harris. She can be screaming bloody murder, but throw in Stefon and she's good to go!
