    Being a longtime fan of Carl Thompson basses, and knowing that Darrin was a "student" of Carl's, I really like Darrin's basses. There's alot of CT flavor in there, I'd really love to own one someday.

    And he's thinking about making an "econo" line for us poor folks, starting at $1500 barebones. I think it's a great idea, I'd love one.

    Anyone own one of his basses? They look awesome. This one kills:

  3. I'm waiting for a bass from Darrin - 'been waiting for a while but damn it's going to be worth it!!! We spoke about a week ago and things are just about set to go :) these are the specs for my Dhuff-

    Z Series w/Ball Scroll
    > 4 String fretted
    > 32” scale
    > 22 Frets
    > 1 9/16” nut
    > 3/4” at bridge
    >
    > Pickups- 2 Nordstrand Jazz SV pickups w/ Birdseye covers
    Preamp- Aguilar 2 band w/ passive tone no stacked pots
    > active/passive push/pull on volume pot
    > Input jack on the face
    > Hardware- Black
    > Custom bridge no string through
    >
    > NECK
    > Birdseye Maple w/Walnut side stripes
    > Fingerboard- Birdseye Maple w/ Wenge binding?
    >
    > BODY
    > Core- Walnut
    > Accent lamination-Maple
    > Top- Mac. Ebony
    > No back?
    > Center block(where a neck through would be) Solid Walnut
    > Racing stripes- Flame Maple outer, Wenge inner

    I just cant wait for the result, it'll be one hell of a bass and I think it'll be the first Dhuff in europe.

    I'm in the same position as Kristjankisi, but also think the wait's gonna be worth it! My Z5 will be a fiver - spalt/quilt maple top and back over alder, scroll horn with carved ball, trans red, single Nordstrand MM5 pup, Aguilar pre, clean ebony fretboard over figured maple neck.

    Thats gonna be one sweet bass Fuzz bass -

    M. Fann thats one of my favorites. The basses are sweet and all, but what I didnt expect was to gain a friend. Darrin is a great guy and I look forward to see the econo series - I think we'll alot of happy Dhuff owners in the near future :)
