    That bass is way too nice. It needs some buckle rash and a couple of big dings from ride cymbal.

    Maybe a channel knob from an old B&W Zenith in place of the pickup blend.

    Hi Guys,

    This bass plays and SOUNDS even better than it looks.

    Thank you all for your positive comments.

    Joe Zon will make one of these for you if you'd like one!!

    FWIW, this is BY FAR the best instrument I've ever played. It's TOTALLY made for me and the way I play. :hyper:

    I plug this into a Thunderfunk head - through and Accugroove 110 cabinet............the sound it BRUTAL. It's SO clean and crisp with plenty of bottom.... :cool:

    I'm SOOOO blessed to have this kind of support from Joe Zon and Mark Wright...... :)

    I hope some of you can come out and hear me play it sometime. I think you'll dig it. (In fact, I'm working TONIGHT with Kristin Korb in Valencia, CA. Check my website for details.) You'll be able to hear this bass recorded after the first of the year.....I have a couple of great record dates coming up, so there should be something out by spring I would think...........Also we'll be debuting this bass at NAMM in January.

    Well, I've gone on long enough........thanks again guys for all your support and encouragement.

    Warmest Regards,

    Hi Guys,

    Hey, if any of you would like to see this bass in person, I'll up at the Christian Musician Summit in Redmond, WA this Friday and Saturday.

    Go to <http://www.christianmusiciansummit.com/ and check out any information you might need.

    I'll be hanging out with Lee & Linda Barker at the Barker Bass Booth. I'll be playing the BVB (and of course my TJ6 ZON) :bassist: and selling my new "walking bass method" DVD. :cool:

    Please be sure to stop by and say "hi".

    I look forward to seeing you there!

    Warm regards,
